CISM International Centre for Mechanical Sciences #531: Environmental Wind Engineering and Design of Wind Energy Structuresby Charalambos Baniotopoulos
Synopses & Reviews
The book presents a state-of-the-art in environmental aerodynamics and the structural design of wind energy support structures, particularly from a modern computational perspective. Examples include real-life applications dealing with pollutant dispersion in the building environment, pedestrian-level winds, comfort levels, relevant legislation and remedial measures. Design methodologies for wind energy structures include reliability assessment and code frameworks.
This book covers environmental aerodynamics and structural design of wind energy support structures from a modern computational viewpoint, with sample applications dealing with pollutant dispersion in the building environment, pedestrian-level winds, and more.
