Wind tunnel testing was considered of strategic importance during the Cold War development of supersonic aircraft and missiles. Later, wind tunnel study came into its own: the effects of wind on man-made structures or objects needed to be studied when buildings became tall enough to present large surfaces to the wind, and the resulting forces.

The test facility is the DNW-HST 10 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The HST is a continuous-flow pressurized wind tunnel that allows for aircraft configuration testing at subsonic and transonic speeds: the Mach number range is from up to Cited by: 3. A brand-new edition of the classic guide on low-speed wind tunnel testing While great advances in theoretical and computational methods have been made in recent years, low-speed wind tunnel testing remains essential for obtaining the full range of data needed to guide detailed design decisions for many practical engineering problems. This long-awaited Third Edition of William H. Rae, Jr.'s.

Wind tunnel testing can be used to provide initial estimations of the dynamic wind load reduction provided by the damping system (Infanti et al., ). Moreover, wind tunnel testing can also be used to assess the structural performance of the tall building with TMDs (Xu et al., ; Gerges and Vickery, ; Infanti et al., ; Tuan and. Wind Tunnel Studies for Buildings and Other Structures, Standard ASCE/SEI , provides the minimum requirements for conducting and interpreting wind tunnel tests to determine wind loads on buildings and other structures. Wind tunnel tests are used to predict the wind loads and responses of a structure, structural components, and cladding to.

Wind tunnel tests have been widely used to predict the wind-induced responses of bridges, as well as to estimate wind loading. Because the bridge model scale is much smaller than the actual bridge, it is difficult to satisfy the Reynolds number similitude, so it is usually disregarded, based on the fact that the.
