The excessive wind-induced motion of tall buildings most frequently result from vortex shedding induced across-wind oscillations. This form of excitation is most pronounced far relatively flexible, lightweight and lightly damped structure, e.g. tall building. This paper discusses aerodynamic means for mitigating the across-wind vortex shedding induced in such situations. Emphasis is on the change of the building cross section to design the building with openings from side to side which provide pressure equalization and tend to reduced the effectiveness of across-wind forces by reducing their magnitudes and disrupting their spatial correlation. Wind tunnel test have been carried out on the Kumoh National University of Technology using rigid models with twenty-four kinds of opening shapes. Form these results, the effective opening shape, size and location for building to reducing wind-induced vortex shedding and responses are pointed out.
