Research Activities and Future Perspectives on Long-Span Bridge Aeroelasticity

Posted on by Vincenzo Picozzi


Fifty years have passed since the pioneering paper by Scanlan and Tomko (“Airfoil and bridge deck flutter derivatives”, J. Eng. Mech. Div., ASCE, Vol. 97, Pt. 6, pp. 1717-1737, 1971) first proposed the successful modeling of flutter and buffeting for long-span bridges.  The model originates from the concept of Scanlan Derivative (SD), a set of empirically measured functions that physically describe the various features of the fluid-structure interaction of the bridge deck. This presentation examines the personal research experience in the field of bridge aeroelasticity of the author, by adapting and re-casting the SD modeling approach to solve two specific issues and to demonstrate its continued validity.
