Wind-induced vibration of slender structures with tapered circular cylinders

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review

Abstract

Circular cylindrical members of structures are known to be susceptible to wind excitations. Previous investigations have primarily focused on cylinders with uniform cross-sections. In this paper, the aeroelastic behavior of tapered circular cylinders in both uniform and sheared flow are studied based on full-scale observations. Two types of excitation mechanisms, one associated with low wind speed and the other with high wind speed, were identified.
