Unfrozen skewed turbulence for wind loading on structures

The present repository includes the Matlab source code used to generate skewed turbulence for wind loading on structures, as presented in [1]. Topic of interests are: wind engineering, structural dynamics, random processes, structural analysis, boundary layer meteorology, atmospheric science (turbulence)

Content

The repository contains:

  • A Matlab livescript Documentation.mlx showing the case of a Diamond geometry

  • The Matlab function windSim4D, which generate the wind field on a 4D grid (3 spatial dimensions, one temporal one)

  • The functions getTargetSpectra, which computes the 1-point auto and cross-spectral densities used as input

  • The function getSamplingPara that provides the time and frequency vector for the initialisation of the simulation

  • The function WindToBridgeBase, which projects the horizontal wind field (u,v) onto the structural elements. This leads to a wind field (vx0,vy0). The name of the function "WindToBridgeBase" comes from the fact that it was first applied for the case of a horizontal bridge deck.

  • The function PlotWindProjection, which shows the wind speed components (u,v) and (ux0,vy0) in the wind-based coordinate system and the structure-based coorindate system

  • The function frictionVelocity, which estimate the friction velocity from the simulated velocity histories.

  • The function plotSpectra, which compares the target and simulated velocity spectra.

  • The function coherence, which provides the co-coherence and quad-coherence estimates.

  • The functions plotCoh_diamond and plotQuadCoh_diamond, which are used in the tutorial only and compare the target and estimated co-coherence and quad-coherence, respectively

This is the first version of the submission. Some bugs may still be present. Any question or comment is welcome
