Hurricane Bonnie Wind Flow Characterisitcs
Whether convective influences result in localized areas of increased wind speeds and different turbulent structure than expected in a normal high wind situation has been debated for years. The question has been ...
Wind-induced Vibrations of Cantilevered Traffic Signal Structures
Under certain conditions of wind speed and wind direction, some cantilevered traffic signal structures undergo large amplitude vibrations in wind speeds of 10 to 20 mph. These vibrations are steady 'up and down' motions ...
Wind Erosion:Mechanics of Saltation and Dust Generation
Soil erosion by wind and associated dust generation cause major social and economic problems in many parts of the world. There is a high cost associated with on-site and off-site damages due to wind erosion. Wind erosion ...
Methodologies for Estimating Emission Rates of Hazardous Gases from Single-Point Sources
In the present study, a monitoring facility for hazardous gases was set up at Texas Tech University's Wind Engineering Research Field Site. The major objective of this study was to use the downwind experimental data ...
Direct Measurement of Wind Loads on a Low-Rise Test Building
Wind loads on low-rise structures are studied in the field primarily so that the results obtained can be used to provide a base-line data set and to assist in wind tunnel studies. The objective of this work is to develop ...
