Time-domain analysis of solar concentrator structure under gust wind
Abstract: Accurate evaluation of wind load effects on solar structures is important for optimizing their design. Gust wind and its dynamic effect may be significant for this type of structure, however while time-domain ...
Study on extraction parameters of flutter derivatives for the development of a time-domain formulation of self-excited forces
Abstract: This paper addresses the evaluation of the dependence of bridge-deck flutter derivatives to the extraction parameters used in wind tunnel tests. The studied parameters are the model scale, model velocity and ...
Evaluation of phase-to-phase clearances of transmission line conductors under turbulent wind
Abstract: "Wind loads govern the design of a large number of overhead transmission lines worldwide. The spatial and temporal variation of wind speed and the buffeting response of cables may induce swings not fully synchronized ...
Influence of damping and force hypotheses for evaluating ductility demand of structures subjected to time history wind loading
Abstract: Current wind design procedures require that structural behavior remains elastic under wind loading corresponding to a specific return period unlike seismic codes that set some specifications to account for the ...
