Paper Title:
Experimental Study of Aerodynamic Interference Effects on Double Thin-Walled Hollow Pier in Tandem Arrangement
  Abstract

Against the problem of the aerodynamic interference effects on aerostatic coefficients between parallel continuous rigid frame bridges with high-pier and long-span, the aerodynamic interference effects on aerostatic coefficients of double thin-walled hollow pier in the parallel long-span continuous rigid frame bridges were investigated in details by means of wind tunnel test.The space between the two piers and wind direction angles were changed during the wind tunnel test to study the effects on aerodynamic interferences of aerostatic coefficients of twin piers. The test got aerostatic coefficients of 8 conditions. The research results have shown that the aerodynamic interference effects on aerostatic coefficients of double thin-walled hollow pier in parallel bridges can not be ignored. The aerodynamic interference effects on parallel bridge pier is shown mainly as follows: The tandem interval and wind direction angles are important factors affecting interference effects. The drag coefficient of pier downstream dropped and the drag coefficient of pier upstream changed but Not change significantly. There are also the aerodynamic interference effects of lateral force coefficient and torque coefficient between the piers upstream and downstream. The effects upstream are smaller and the effects downstream are larger.
