     View Summary

    <p>This paper compares the buffeting response of a suspension bridge simulated in time-domain with full-scale measurement data. First, the buffeting and self-excited forces are formulated in terms of indicial functions (IFs) using convolution based linear unsteady and Volterra series based nonlinear unsteady wind models. Then, first and second-orders IFs are identified using experimental data. Subsequently, a turbulent wind field is simulated for full bridge using spectral theory. At last, a numerical example of a 3D suspension bridge model is presented. The time-history dynamic analysis results show that a good agreement in the buffeting response is obtained between numerical simulation results and measurement data. It also highlights the efficacy of proposed time-domain method to predict the buffeting response accurately.</p>

     View Summary

    <p>Global warming influences sea surface temperature which intensifies typhoons and may change extreme value distribution of wind speed. In order to simulate typhoons affected by sea surface temperature, full-track type typhoon simulation is very effective measures. The effect of sea surface temperature on the extreme value distribution was evaluated by a past typhoon simulation. However, errors tend to accumulate because the typhoon paths simulated is long. In this study, a new model of the central pressure difference was proposed. The result showed that central pressure calculated by the new model is close to observed values.</p>
