Active gust generation and its application to bluff body aerodynamics

  title={Active gust generation and its application to bluff body aerodynamics},
  author={Akihide Hatanaka and Hiroshi Kobayashi},
ABSTRACT: The authors developed a gust generator. The effects of gusty wind to structural models were investigated. In this paper, active gust generation techniques and its advantages are summarized and one of the experimental studies for bluff body aerodynamic problems using the advantages is presented. The experimental study includes the estimations of aerodynamic admittance functions and indicial response functions of bluff bodies. And flutter derivatives in turbulent flows of bluff bodies… CONTINUE READING
