Wind-Induced Vibration Analysis of Wind Fence Structure


Article Preview

As a new wind-break and dust-control technology, the wind fence is widely used at storage yards in factories and ports. The wind fence structure is a new high-rise wind-resistant structure with light damp and very heavy wind load, and the wind-induced vibration response is unknown and equivalent static wind load is hard to determine in design. Based on the Davenport spectrum, wind-induced vibration of the plane frame structure was analyzed with frequency domain method and the response spectrum of displacement and acceleration were obtained. The equivalent static wind load was studied and the wind-induced vibration coefficient and gust loading factor were gained. The results show that the wind-induced vibration response of the structure is significant, and it should be taken into consideration in structural design.
