Elements for numerical simulation of wind time series

I. Fernández, V. Elena Parnás


Dynamic characteristics of structures determine the methods to be used for their analysis and design against environmental loads such as wind. In some structures, the effect of the energy contained in gusts sequences must be attended, emphasizing the fluctuating components of the gusts that resonate with them. In these cases, dynamic methods in time domain are frequently used. Numerical simulation of wind loads is a tool that has been widely developed and applied. The aim of this study is to perform a literature review to determine the necessary parameters for simulating wind time series as well as the existing numerical methods for this purpose, emphasizing in tropical cyclone-prone region.
