Paper Title:
Field Investigation and Wind-Environment Numerical Simulation of Cable-Stayed Bridge Site in the West Midlands Region
  Abstract

The area of mountain ridge accounts for the most part of our country land. With the development of economic construction, more and more long span bridges have been built in the mountainous region of the western in China.. Combining live observed wind with numeric simulation, the wind characteristics on the western gap of valley areas are studied. On the one hand through the self-development processing of the bridge speed data to analyze massive wind observation data, the parameters (such as wind speed profile, turbulence intensity, power spectral density) used as the main basis for calculating wind loads are achieved. On the other hand wind flow around the bridge site as well as the environment around the mountain wind flow, wind speed field and the distribution of turbulent flow, etc is obtained by using CFD technology. Based on the results that is compared with that of numerical simulation by FLUENT, the reliability and efficiency of the program is testified. It would be provided with great theoretical significance and practical engineering value passes through the foregoing study.
