Experimental Vortex-induced Vibrations of a Streamlined Deck

The video shows a vortex-induced vibrations of a streamlined deck with railings. The sectional model is suspended on four springs and tested in a closed-circut wind tunnel.

We performed the tests in Bauhaus University Wind Tunnel (Chair of Modelling and Simulation of Structures). Many thanks to Luis Federico Navarro Vilchez and the whole wind team who contributed to performing the experiment.
