Buffeting of the Great Belt Bridge

The animation shows a buffeting response of the Great Belt Bridge, which has been simulated using a semi-analytical aerodynamic model and a structure in the mode space, only considering wind effects on the deck with synthetic random free-stream turbulence. Vibration amplitudes are exaggerated.

The simulation is performed using using my in-house code AWind.
