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.
