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

Course date

Monday 21 September, 10:00 - 17:30 GMT

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.
