Abstract

As the span length of a bridge grows, wind effects on the structure would become more serious, even coming to govern the structural design. Ever since the collapse of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge signified the importance of dynamic wind effects, wind tunnel tests have been often carried out to verify aerodynamic stability of long-span bridges. However, since the wind-induced phenomena of long-span bridges are interaction between wind and the structure, the exact modeling of phenomena is not without difficulty even today. Analytical efforts in the past to predict the wind-induced phenomena of long-span bridges have never been up to our present satisfaction.
