A Wind Tunnel Study of an Aeroelastic Model of the Florida Suncoast Dome
Very large scale cable domes have been built using prestressed, high strength steel cable or strand, steel tube columns and a lightweight fiberglass skin. Geiger Engineers Florida Suncoast...

Non-Gaussian Vortex Induced Aeroelastic Vibrations under Gaussian Wind
The 'lock in' aeroelastic vibration phenomenon observed for random wind excitation is modeled in a way that allows the application of the Slepian model process tool to obtain an approximation...

Unsteady Aeroelastic Base Moments on a High-Rise Building
To consider aeroelastic instabilities of prismatic structures in winds, i.e., vortex induced vibrations or galloping oscillations, unsteady aeroelastic forces must be investigated as the...

Wind Tunnel Aeroelastic Model Study of the Baytown Bridge (Steel Alternative)
Analytical and full bridge aeroelastic model studies performed to assess the aerodynamic stability of the steel alternative Baytown Bridge over the Houston Ship Channel are described....

Wind Tunnel Model Studies of Buildings and Structures
This manual provides guidelines on wind tunnel model testing of buildings and structures. Included are procedures required to provide representative information on wind effects experienced...

Wind Loads and Building Response Predictions Using Force Balance Techniques
The use of force balance techniques to measure mean and dynamic wind loads on models of buildings and structures is discussed. Advantages of using force balance techniques over estimating...

Acrosswind Response of Buildings
The acrosswind response of buildings is investigated. Expressions for the acrosswind loading are developed through the use of the spatio-temporal measurement of the fluctuating pressure...

Aeroelastic Stability of Unstiffened Suspension Bridges
It is the purpose of this paper to present a theoretical analysis for unstiffened suspension bridges to determine the conditions under which an unstiffened bridge would be adequate. The...

Response to Triangular Prisms in Turbulent Wind
Aeroelastic responses of 1/400 scale model with five masses were measured in a boundary layer wind tunnel to simulate the responses of twin triangular buildings in the turbulent wind at...

Lateral oscillations of square and rectangular prisms resulting from its aerodynamic instability (often called galloping oscillations) are analyzed theoretically and studied experimentally...

Aeroelastic Galloping of Prismatic Bodies
Galloping oscillations of long prismatic bodies with aerodynamically unstable cross sections in the direction normal to that of the acting steady wind are analyzed. Principally, the steady...

Response of Cooling Tower to Turbulent Wind
Existing knowledge on the behavior of cooling towers is summarized. The natural frequencies of a cooling tower are obtained from the equilibrium equations, in finite difference form, by...

Aeroelastic Vibration of a Steel Arch
The cause of vibration of a building with an unusual frontal profile is found to be the vortex shedding. Of the seven corrective measures considered, only the increase of the number of...
