Wind tunnel test research on aerodynamic means of the ZG Bridge
Xiangdong He and Shaozhong Xi

 
Abstract
    The ZG Bridge(preliminary design), with unfavorable aerodynamic stability characteristics, is a truss-stiffened suspension bridge, its critical wind speed of flutter instability is much lower than that of code requirement. In the present paper, based on both aerostatic and aeroelastic section model wind tunnel test, not only effects of some aerodynamic means on aerodynamic stability of its main girder are investigated, but also such effective aerodynamic means of it as flap and plate-like center stabilizer are concluded.rn
 
Key Words
    flutter; wind tunnel test; flap; plate-like center stabilizer.
