Aerodynamic Methods for Mitigating Wind-Induced Building Motions
Excessive wind-induced motions of tall buildings most frequently result from vortex shedding induced across-wind oscillations. This form of excitation is most pronounced for relatively...

Field Observation of Aerodynamic Responses of a PC Cable-Stayed Bridge During Its Erection
Recordings were made of the response of a PC cable-stayed bridge during erection and the wind velocity at erection site. These recordings were analyzed to provide estimates of the characteristics...

Aerodynamic Stability of Long Span Suspension Bridge—Effects of Stiffening Truss Width
This paper presents the effects of truss width upon the aerodynamic stability of the long span suspension bridge with truss girder up to 2000 m. It was found that the truss width had a...

The Wind Resistant Design of Cable-Stayed Bridges

Time Series Analysis of Wind Pressures on Low Buildings
A new methodology for the description of local wind pressures on the building envelope of mono-sloped roof buildings by using time series analysis is described. A simple AR(1) model has...

Large Scale Evapotranspiration from Remotely Sensed Surface Temperature
Large scale evapotranspiration requires a blend of ground-based and remotely sensed data. To evaluate the utility of the extension from a small to a large scale, studies were conducted...

Methods for Determining Actual Evapotranspiration in Plots
The major methods used at INRA since 1965 for determining actual evapotranspiration (AET) in plots are reviewed in this paper. These procedures involve either direct determination (weighing...

Forty Years of Computational Hydraulics—1960-2000
The definition of computational hydraulics as used herein is: the application of numerical methods for the solution of problems of hydraulic flows, largely as practiced by the civil engineering...

Flutter Derivatives from 14 Generic Deck Sections
The results of a series of wind-tunnel bridge-deck section-model experiments are discussed. Fourteen section models, seven with H-shaped cross-sections and seven with rectangular cross-sections,...

Stabilizing Winglet Pair for Slender Bridge Decks
This paper describes the effectiveness, as an aerodynamic damper, of a pair of winglets mounted parallel to, and clear from, bridge decks that might otherwise be aeroelastically unstable....

The Application of Aerodynamic Model Tests to Wind Loading of Tall Buildings
The theory of the aerodynamic model test, in which the wind response of tall structures can be computed for a range of dynamic properties from a measurement of the external wind load,...

Changes in Bridge Deck Flutter Derivatives Caused by Turbulence
This paper discusses some of the results of a wind tunnel study that tested the aeroelastic stability of section models in smooth and gusting flow. Wind gusts several times longer than...
