Wind Engineering is a particular field of Civil Engineering that evaluates the resistance of structures caused by wind loads. Bridges, high-rise buildings, chimneys and telecommunication towers might be susceptible to wind vibrations due to their increased flexibility, therefore a special design is carried for this aspect. Advancement in technology and scientific studies permit us doing research at small scale for more accurate analyses. Therefore scaled models of real structures are built and tested for various construction scenarios. These models are placed in wind tunnels where experiments are conducted to determine parameters such as: critical wind speeds for bridge decks, static wind coefficients and forces for buildings or bridges. The objective of the course was to offer insight to the students into the assessment of long-span cable-supported bridges and high-rise buildings under wind excitation. The participating students worked in interdisciplinary teams to increase their knowledge in the understanding and influences on the behaviour of wind-sensitive structures.show moreshow less
