Wind loading and structural response Lecture 15 Dr. J.D. Holmes Fatigue under wind loading Fatigue under wind loading Occurs on slender chimneys, masts under vortex shedding - narrow (frequency) band Occurs on steel roofing under wide band loading May occur in along-wind dynamic response - background - wide band - resonant - narrow band Fatigue under wind loading Failure model - based on sinusoidal test results Nsm = K N = cycles to failure s = stress amplitude K = a constant depending on material m = exponent between 5 and 20 Fatigue under wind loading Failure model - based on sinusoidal test results

Typical s-N graph : Fatigue under wind loading Failure model Miners Rule : ni N 1 i ni = number of stress cycles at given amplitude Ni = number of stress cycles for failure at that amplitude Assumes fractional damage at different stress amplitudes adds linearly to give total damage No restriction on order of loading High-cycle fatigue (stresses below yield stress) Fatigue under wind loading

Narrow band random loading : s(t) time for narrow-band random stress s(t), the proportion of cycles with amplitudes in the range from s to s + s,= fp(s). s fp(s) is the probability density of the peaks total number of cycles in a time period, T, is o+T o+ is the rate of crossing of the mean stress ( natural frequency) Fatigue under wind loading Narrow band random loading : total number of cycles with amplitudes in the range s to s, n(s) = o+T fp(s). s fractional damage at stress level, s :
