When designing exceptionally slender structures, it’s important to keep wind-induced vibration in mind. It may be an issue despite the structure passing all demand checks during the design phase. This article will cover why it’s important for engineers to consider vibration when designing and detailing a slender structure. Common examples of vibration-susceptible structures are static masts, light poles, overhead line termination structures (dead-ends), and rigid bus. Read more here.
