Aerodynamic and Climate Engineering to Address Climate Resiliency in Long-Span Bridges

14:00 - 14:25
  • Long-span bridges must be designed for climate resiliency.
  • Bridge monitoring, wind tunnel aerodynamic studies and numerical analysis can help evaluate the current state of the bridge, as well as components such as the cables, deck and hangers.
  • By combining this understanding with site-specific wind and climate models, digital models can be created to predict responses to future windstorms and to inform design and rehabilitation decisions.
  • Case studies will be used to demonstrate examples where early-stage consulting has benefitted both existing and new bridges.
