This online course covers the theoretical background, technical aspects and Eurocode provisions for the analysis and design of flexible structures exposed to wind loads.

Learning outcomes

By the end of the course, you should be able to:

  • Distinguish between and simulate dynamic wind loads on structures 

  • Describe vortex shedding  phenomena on tall structures (such as chimneys and tall buildings) and their design implications 

  • Propose means to suppress wind-induced responses (wind-resistant design and  various damping solutions)

Intended for

Civil or structural engineers with an interest in the analysis and design of wind-excited flexible structures, such as chimneys, tall buildings and transmission towers. 

Entry criteria

This course covers concepts of structural dynamics. It complements  the Wind Loading on Structures to EN1991-1-4 course, which covers the basic principles underlying EN 1991-1-4. Participants may find it beneficial to have some familiarity with the fundamental concepts of structural dynamics, Fourier analysis and matrix calculations.

Tutor

Dr Alessandro Palmeri

Alessandro leads the Structures and Materials Group at Loughborough University. His research focuses on applications of structural dynamics, including bridge, earthquake and wind engineering, and probabilistic methods, including reliability-and-performance-based design.

Dr Giorgio Barone

Giorgio, is a lecturer in structural engineering at Loughborough University. His research, expertise and interests include structural dynamics, with emphasis on earthquake and wind engineering, as well as lifecycle engineering and maintenance optimisation of ageing structures.
