Abstract The present study focuses on the tower type structures response to the dynamic loads. The study analyzes the possible mode shapes regarding to tower structure. The estimation of mode shapes and their dependence from structural changes was made for an existing tower structure. To get an acceptable tower’s vibration level and avoid possibility of resonance effect from usual serviceability loads it was evaluated options to change natural frequencies of the structure. It is performed existing 36m high sightseeing tower dynamic analysis and proposed potential solutions to increase critical natural frequencies of the structure. In this study to obtain dynamic parameters of the sightseeing tower structure have been used finite element models and calculation techniques
