“Wind Load Uncertainty Effects on Long-Span Bridge Aeroelasticity”

Posted on by Federico Canepa

Professor Luca Caracoglia (Northeastern University) will present the talk titled “Wind Load Uncertainty Effects on Long-Span Bridge Aeroelasticity: from Stochastic Dynamics to Artificial Intelligence Surrogate Models”, where the relevance of wind load uncertainty propagation on wind-induced bridge vibrations will be examined. In the first part, reduced-order models will be employed to estimate the stationary probability distribution of a generalized variable vector, simulating the wind-induced bridge response contaminated by various error sources. The second part will examine Monte-Carlo simulation algorithms for uncertainty quantification and to study the loss of performance in a long-span bridge, produced by wind-induced vibration. Finally, in the context of flutter instability, the study will introduce how Artificial Intelligence can be innovatively employed to estimate bridge flutter occurrence without requiring the direct solution of the equations of motion.

The webinar will be hosted on December 9th 2020 at 11:30 AM (CET) at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, University of Perugia, remotely via Microsoft Teams platform.

Please contact ilaria.venanzi@unipg.it for more information and how to access the webinar.

International Wind Engineering online monthly seminars

Posted on by Federico Canepa

Because of the Covid19 pandemic, opportunities for the international wind engineering community to meet physically have been very much restricted and are likely to remain so for at least the next year.

To enable the community to continue to interact with each other, at least in a virtual way, the University of Birmingham is organizing a series of six seminars via Zoom from October 2020 to March 2021.  These are sponsored by the IAWE and will hopefully have a significant international audience. Each seminar will last around an hour and a half to two hours, and will consist of a main speaker for around 30 minutes followed by further short contributions or a panel debate. There will also be an opportunity for online discussion by those attending.

For the complete list of seminars and for further details, please visit:

International Wind Engineering seminars 2020/21

Registration details, seminar programme and speaker and talk abstracts will be posted on each seminar’s webpage at the link above as they become available. Recordings of the presentations will also be posted after the seminars.
