The Influence of Turbulence Integral Scale to Buffeting of Long-Span Bridge
In this paper, the influence of turbulence integral scale to buffeting responses of long-span bridge is analyzed by adopting 2-D buffeting theory. One cable-stayed bridge and one suspension bridge are selected as analysis object. Buffeting responses are calculated under two different wind speeds and different size of turbulence integral scales, which range from 10m to 80m in this paper. The numerical results show that buffeting responses do not change with turbulence integral scale linearly and when turbulence integral scale increases to one value, buffeting responses reach a peak. In addition, turbulence integral scale corresponding to peak value of buffeting responses rise with growth of wind speed.
