Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

The responses of wind engineering structures, particularly bridge deck sections, but also buildings, towers, cables and bluff bodies, to unsteady aerodynamic forces is a particular focus of the research. These include investigation of aeroelastic phenomena, such as VIV, galloping and flutter, to assess structural integrity due to the unsteady aerodynamic loading and the calculation of lateral flutter derivatives using a discrete vortex method.
