Summary

An in-depth guide to understanding wind effects on cable supported bridges, this book uses analytical, numerical and experimental methods to give readers a practical understanding. It is structured to systemically move from introductory areas through to advanced topics currently being developed from research work. The book concludes with the application of the theory covered to real-world examples, enabling readers to apply their knowledge. The author provides background material on the topic first of all, covering areas such as wind climate, cable-supported bridges, wind-induced damage, and the history of bridge wind engineering. Wind characteristics in atmospheric boundary layer, mean wind load and aerostatic instability, wind-induced vibration and aerodynamic instability, and wind tunnel testing are then described as the fundamentals of the subject. State-of-the-art contributions include wind and rain-induced cable vibration, wind-vehicle-bridge interactions, wind-induced vibration control, wind and structural health monitoring, and probabilistic evaluation and reliability analysis. Finally the theory is applied to the Tsing Ma suspension bridge and the Stonecutters cable-stayed bridge in Hong Kong. Amongst the world's longest bridges, both are located in one of the world's most active typhoon regions and equipped with incredibly comprehensive structural health monitoring systems. The book will therefore bridge the gap between the theoretical research and practical applications.
