ABSTRACT

It is well known that at certain intensities of wind flow velocity acting on a structure, the

response of the latter in the transverse direction of flow is induced by alternating vortices. The

most important parameters that contribute to the cross wind response are: the intensity of

turbulence, the duration of the gusts and the magnitude of the wind speed in the floe direction.

Nevertheless, there is not exist an unified criteria to evaluate the cross-wind response and

several methodologies has been proposed. In this paper, two of those methodologies for the

calculation of total displacements in the transverse direction of the wind flow, are analyzed and

described. Also, some procedures proposed in different international design codes to evaluate

the cross-wind response of cylindrical structures, are applied to the case of a chimney for

comparison. Finally, it is concluded that the method that best estimates the cross response due to

vortices, with respect to the results reported in the literature and obtained experimentally in full

scale prototypes, is the one proposed in the Danish code.

INTRODUCTION

A high speed flow passing around a body with arbitrary shape (Figure 1) produces a wake vortex

on the back with alternating movement from one side to another, a phenomenon known as wake

vortices Bnard - von Karman who are credited with this observation.

In many structures not only the dynamic response in the along-wind direction is

important, but also the response due to vortex shedding in the leeward side that produce crosswind displacements and which must be considered in the total response. The longitudinal

vibrations of the structure are caused by the natural turbulence of the wind, but the cross-wind

ones are caused, besides the natural turbulence of the wind, by vortex shedding. This

phenomenon can be presented in structures like lattice towers with a high solidity ratio

( 0 .5) , in rectangular prismatic structures like buildings (Figure 2) and slim bridges, but

mainly it appears in structures with cylindrical cross-sectional section like cylindrical towers,

poles, masts and chimneys.

A great number of failures in structures, mainly with circular cross-section [1], have been

reported in literature. In steel chimneys, the cross-wind effects produce important displacements

perpendicular to the wind direction and these at the time, increase the cross-wind base

overturning moment in the foundations, and therefore in the joint stresses, as they are the

anchors, nuts and the base plate. Because the vortex shedding produced fluctuating forces, this is

translated in a series of cycles of load that can generate a fatigue failure in the material. Some

examples are shown in Figure 3.

Two basic methodologies for the calculation of the total displacements in the transverse direction of the

wind flow in civil structures due to the vortex shedding exist: the spectral method and the resonance

vortex shedding method. Before describing these two methodologies, it is necessary to remark

some concepts described in the following.

The vortex shedding frequency depends on the body shape, flow velocity, surface

roughness and the flow turbulence. The frequency of vortex shedding is given by

St V

(1)

b

Where St is the Strouhal number (dimensionless), V (m/s) is the mean wind velocity

crit

and b (m) is the characteristics width of the cross-section; for circular cylinders the

characteristics width is the mean external diameter. The vortex shedding effect on a circular

cylinder depends on the Reynolds number, which is given by:

Vb

(2)

Re

Where V and b are defined as in Equation 1 and is the kinematic viscosity of the air,

which is approximately 15 x 10-6 m2/s corresponding to a temperature of 20 centigrade. The

path of vortex wake in the leeward is important, mainly those that occur regularly and move

alternately from one side to another side (Figure 4).

Figure 4: Experimental evidence of the vortex shedding on a leeward side of circular section

When Reynolds number increases the flow shifts from laminar to transitory turbulence.

Achenbach [2] identified four intervals depending on the flow behavior of the boundary layer,

these are: subcritical, critical, supercritical and transcritical. The Reynolds number that defines

each scheme has not been determined accurately because it depends on various factors like the

roughness of the cylinder, the intensity of streamlines, and aspect ratio of the cylinder (Figure 5).

In Table 1, this intervals and their corresponding approximated Reynolds number are related.

For circular cross-section, Strouhal number varies with flow velocity and therefore with

Reynolds number. In Table 2, StrouhalReynolds number empirical relationships are shown [3],

where y ln Re 1.6 x 10 3 .

In general, Strouhal number ranges from 0.18 to 0.20. In most practical cases that arise in

structures, it may be considered a constant Strouhal number equal to 0.2.

In the following paragraphs the spectral and resonance vortex shedding methodologies

are described.

SPECTRAL METHOD

The spectral method gives adequate results for relatively rigid structures such as concrete

silos, concrete chimneys with large diameter and low height [4]. In this case, the procedure of the

vortex shedding response is based on the spectral modal analysis.

The generalized force on the structure, due to the vortex shedding, is:

Where k p is the peak factor and y (z ) is the standard deviation of the displacement

given in Equation 11.

RESONANT VORTEX SHEDDING METHOD

The modal force for a dynamic system is the same that is obtained with the Spectral

Method (Equation 3). Nevertheless, the Resonant Vortex Shedding Method [5] establishes that

inertia force per unit length, in cross-wind direction, is:

Fv ( z , t ) q ( z ) d ( z ) c F ( z ) sin 2 s t ( z )

(16)

factor that describes the amplitude, s is vortex shedding frequency and (z ) is a factor equal to

0 or 1, which determines if the load has the same sign that the modal shape at all points

throughout the structure length. For modes with constant sign, ( z ) 0 . The form factor, cF (z) ,

depends on vibration amplitude, air turbulence, Reynolds and Strouhal numbers, cross-section

and on the aspect ratio. The maximum cross-wind deflection is given by:

The vibration amplitude and the limited correlation of load, described by the correlation

length, shows that maximum load does no occur simultaneously along the structure.

Ruscheweyh [5] takes in account this last effect by integrating the maximum amplitude of load

along the entire length, L , so that L 2 is the correlation length that is equal to the integral of

correlation function from zero to infinite. The maximum amplitude of the load is calculated in

the nodal points near the maximum deflection; this is for considering the aeroelastic effects and

the wind action that produces the maximum response. If variations, throughout structure height,

of wind pressure and width of structure are negligible and, still more, assuming that the modal

shape has the same sign, the integral of the numerator of Equation 18 can be approximated by:

h

c

( z ) ( z ) dz clat. k p ( z ) dz

(22)

Where clat. is the standard deviation of the load. It has seen that the maximum load can

be equal to the standard deviation multiplied by the peak factor. Ruscheweyh [5] considers the

peak factor by means integration of the modal shape over the effective correlation length, L e ,

defined by:

( z ) dz k ( z ) dz

p

(23)

Thus, the effective correlation length incorporates the influences of the correlation of

load and peak factor. Substituting Equations 22 and 23 in Equation 19, is obtained

For modes that do not have constant sign, it is assumed that load acts in the same

proposed in Reference [4].

Some of parameters involved in expressions proposed in the codes have already been defined, so

only the new ones will be defined in the following corresponding expressions.

circular cylinder also dependent on the Reynolds number. K a is the aerodynamic damping

parameter, which decreases with increasing turbulence intensity. For a turbulence intensity of

0%, this constant may be taken as K a K a , max . , which gives conservative estimation of

displacements. a L is the normalized limiting amplitude given the deflection of structures with

very low damping.

For a circular cylinder, the constants C c , K a , max . , and a L are given in Table 3 [6].

Danish Code establishes that the effect vortex shedding shall be investigated when ratio

of the largest to smallest cross-wind dimension of the structure, both taken in the plane

perpendicular to the wind flow, exceeds 6. The rules provided in this code are valid only in

structures with slightly varying cross-wind dimensions. If the structure is not heavily damped,

the oscillations will increase when the vortex shedding is in resonance with a mode vibrating

perpendicular to the wind. This occurs at wind velocities close to the resonance wind velocity,

which is calculated by Equation 27. For a circular cylinder S t 0.16 for h / b 6 and

S t 0.20 for h / b 15 . For h / b in the range between 6 and 15, St is assumed to vary as the

logarithm of h / b . For structures with varying cross-wind dimensions, values in Equation 27

corresponding to the point with maximum movement are used.

The effect of resonant vortex shedding depends on the turbulence intensity of the wind.

For 10 min. mean wind velocities larger than approximately 15 m/s the turbulence intensity of

the wind is calculated by:

Where c t (z ) is the topography factor, which is taken as unity in this paper work. The

roughness length z0 and the minimum height z min are shown in Table 6.

The inertia force per unit length and the maximum deflection in cross-wind direction are

given by Equations 31 and 32, respectively. The standard deviation can be calculates by means

of Equations 33-35, except that:

To compare the results obtained by applying expressions proposed in different international

design codes for cross-wind response of cylindrical structures, is proposed as a case study,

calculate the maximum displacement in the cross-wind direction due to the effects of vortex

shedding in a steel chimney with constant thickness. It is assumed that foundation is quit rigid,

which mean that chimney can be considered as cantilever beam without soil-structure

interaction. The design data are:

A summary of the total displacements due to cross-wind response for a chimney with

typical characteristics, applying the wind design codes previously described, is shown in Table 7.

In this table, it can be seen that the results obtained applying the Canadian and the

ISO 4356:1997(E) Codes, can be very conservative. Likewise, the spectral method proposed by

Euro Code ignored the turbulence intensity influence; therefore the results obtained are

conservative as well.

On the other hand, the Danish code certainly considers the turbulence intensity, reason

why the displacements acquired with this code are more reliable. About this, spite of it doesnt

appear in this paperwork, the results that have been obtained in other research works [5, 11-12]

demonstrate that the Danish code provides more accurate values.

CONCLUSIONS

In this work the methodology proposed by different wind design codes has been analyzed to

calculate the maximum response that can take place in a cylindrical structure in cross wind

direction, due to the vortex shedding. Considering the turbulence intensity and, for hence, the

roughness place in where the structure will be built; the results are more congruent between the

data obtained with experimental tests and the data resultant from the environment vibration tests

made on steel chimneys. In conclusion, the methodology proposed by the Danish code for vortex

shedding effects is the more accurate.
