Paper Title:
Investigation of Wind-Resistance Reinforcement for a Sculpture
  Abstract

The sculpture is a special structure. The wind-resistance issue of such a special structure is easily ignored by structural engineers. In this paper, the wind-resistance problem of a real sculpture ‘water-drop’ is investigated by wind tunnel test and theoretical analysis. The results show the original sculpture structure has severe wind-resistance defects. According to these defects, some reinforcing measures for the structure are put forward and put into execution. After the structural modification, the sculpture ‘water-drop’ has been hit by typhoon two times and now stands without any damage. Finally, a workflow is summarized for the wind-resistance appraisal and reinforcement of the existing structures.
