Bridge Section Testing

The ULg wind tunnel carries out wind tunnel tests on bridge sections. The main aim of such tests is to estimate the aerodynamic loads, both static and dynamic, acting on the bridge sections under different wind conditions. Both laminar and turbulent winds can be simulated in the wind tunnel. Such work has been carried out for several projects, both local and international. The ULg wind tunnel has close ties with the University's Architecture and Civil Engineering Department (ArGenCo) and the Greisch Design Office.
