Cross-Wind Excitation of a Microwave Tower

A wind tunnel study undertaken to investigate large oscillations observed on a microwave tower is reported. It is found that large oscillations can occur for a narrow band of wind directions, which are produced by vortex shedding from the microwave reflectors. R.V. Milford and A.M. Goliger
