The new wind resistant design manual for highway bridges has been required recently in Japan. The working group was organized in the Japan Road Association is 1984 to prepare the manual. The working group was reformed into the wind resistant design committee in 1986, and the first draft of The Proposed Wind Resistant Design Manual For Highway Bridges was completed. The contents of the manual are as follows: 1. General remarks 2. Guideline of wind resestant design 3. Wind properties used in design (basic wind speed, design wind speed, intensity of turbulence, etc.) 4. Wind-induced vibrations of bridge deck (prediction, evaluation, method of alleviation flutter, galloping, vortex-induced vibrations, gust responses) 5. Wind-induced vibrations of towers and bridge members 6. Wind resistant design at erection stages and 7. Wind tunnel testing methods.
