Wind Tunnel Testing

The design of long-span bridges requires climatology studies and wind tunnel testing. Sectional models investigate buffeting, flutter, vortex shedding and galloping and determine aerodynamic coefficients and wind load distributions. Aeroelastic models determine aerodynamic derivatives and flutter speed.

Wind Tunnel Testing, the theme collection of the Bridge Industry, showcases services and technology of the international protagonists of the sector.

The Bridge Industry is a virtual tradeshow for the bridge community, accessible for free from every corner of the world. Rich, interactive eBooths display products and services of 2000 selected protagonists of the industry to well over 50.000 bridge owners, designers and construction professionals.
