Content

  • Wind induced loadings on civil structures like buildings, bridges, slender towers etc.
  • Describe the meteorologic context, the topography and the building surrounding for the location of interest
  • The aerodynamic behaviour which is mainly influenced by the buildings' shape, geometry and permeability has to be analyzed in detail
  • Statistical analysis of the characteristic load values for local elements (like claddings or roof elements)
  • Calculate the dynamic properties of simple dynamic systems
  • The dynamic response of slender structures due to wind load effects
