Model of the footbridge in working section of wind tunnel
Sectional model of footbridge span in the working section of wind tunnel
Comprehensive aerodynamic calculations of the bridge in various phases of its building (pylon, bridge in realization phase, bridge in building phase and suspension cables) covering the following issues: determination of dynamic characteristics ie. the frequencies and forms of vibration and acceptance of adequate vibration damping characteristics; determination of the static response in displacement and stresses from the static wind action; determination of the dynamic response in displacement and stresses caused by atmospheric turbulence and aerodynamic pressures; determination of the dynamic response of the vortex excitation.
