In this paper, wind-induced vibration of a super-high tower is numerically studied. The natural frequencies of the tower are calculated. Karman’s Vortex Street is simulated and the alternate lateral forces across the wind are obtained. It is found that with the wind speed range of 0–52.3m/s acting on the tower, the maximum vortex shedding frequency is lower than the second natural frequency of the tower. Resonance of the tower could occur at the first natural frequency with the horizontal force amplitude 241.5N/m. For high towers, it is suggested that the wind actions in across the wind and fatigue strength checks should also be considered in the design approach.
