Project description

The project consists of an overview of the wind phenomenon which causes turbulent forces in the design of bridges, which is referred to as buffeting response. Furthermore, a case study is shown with computational simulations for this phenomenon and its comparison with the traditional wind tunnel test. For the numerical simulation, a CFD solver called Vxflow was employed and for the Wind tunnel experiment, a scaled model of the bridge was built to examine the response of the model under a man-made turbulence wind field in another laboratory. The results consist of the data obtained from the analyses of the cross sections with and without wind barrier.
