Design Against Wind-Excited Vibration

This paper sets out a way in which a structural engineer can decide whether a proposed structure would turn out to be dynamically unstable if built in a particular site. When the simple calculations indicate that the structure would, in fact, be wind sensitive, advice is given on ways of entirely avoiding the situtation at the design stage instead of alluding a real, and therefore expensive, problem to arise during construction, or after completion.
