This work presents an empirical model capable to describe the galloping bifurcation behaviour of a bridge deck. It is based on a general polynomial form proposed by Novak, which we limit to the 5th order. The advantage of choosing this function for modelling the vertical force coefficient is that asymmetry of the even terms is enforced in order to reproduce the sub-critical aeroelastic behaviour of the bridge deck. The coefficients of the polynomial are identified from several pairs of displacement amplitudes and the corresponding airspeeds, measured in a wind tunnel during dynamic tests on the sectional bridge model. The identification is carried out using a first order harmonic balance technique. A stability analysis is presented in order to highlight the need of such a model to catch the complete bifurcation behaviour of the system. The resulting force coefficient of this full order model is compared to the well known models of Parkinson and Novak. Finally, the concept universal curve is used in order to discuss the galloping responses of square and rectangular cylinders, in comparison with the one of the bridge deck. [less ▲]

In current wind design practice, static wind loads are usually defined to obtain, by simple static analyses, the extreme values of any structural response that would be formally obtained with a strict dynamic buffeting analysis. The minimum and maximum values that may reach any response define the envelope. Equivalent static wind loads (ESWLs) allow to recover extreme responses in the envelope. As a first objective, this paper formalizes a general method to determine ESWL, in a nodal basis, by extending the concept of load-response correlation, which is only valid in the background range. The general method, the displacement-response-correlation (DRC) method, covers the background and resonant contributions of the considered response. As a second objective, the paper addresses the problem of building a set of static wind loads that adequately reconstructs the envelopes of responses. The concept of principal static wind loads (PSWL) is introduced to form a reduced basis of representative loads well-suited for envelope reconstruction. Its optimality is demonstrated both analytically and with a detailed illustrative example. [less ▲]

Galloping on power lines is a difficult matter. In this paper a galloping has been reproduced in a wind tunnel on a section of an actual conductor with actual ice shape. Aerodynamics is first detailed. Then flutter type and Den Hartod type galloping has been obtained in the wind tunnel depending on changeable ratio vertical to torsional frequencies. [less ▲]
