Eureka Tower

EurekaTower2014 225x300MEL Consultants were awarded the wind engineering consultancy for Grocon’s Eureka Residential Tower in Melbourne. The consultancy includes assessment of environmental wind conditions, aeroelastic wind tunnel model measurements of structural wind loads, wind tunnel model measurements of pressures and the determination of facade design pressures, full scale measurement of the modal frequencies and damping, and the design and commissioning of the liquid tuned mass damper. Additionally, due to Eureka Tower being one of the first tall residential towers to be constructed in the world, MEL Consultants provided desktop analysis and advice to assist with the design of the mechanical air handling systems, lifts, and building management system.
