Measures Against Wind-Induced Vibrations of Bridges

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Bridges and Transmission Line Structures


The design of very flexible structures, such as long-span steel bridges, are frequently governed by wind-induced vibrations. This paper introduces the present situation of the cable-supported steel bridges in Japan, and then reviews a variety of countermeasures to suppress wind-induced vibrations of these structures. The examples, both aerodynamic and mechanical, are mainly concerned with the Japanese bridges.
