      Loredo Souza, Acir Mércio; Wittwer, Adrián Roberto; Rocha, Marcelo M.; De Bortoli, Mario Eduardo; Klaus Oliveira, Mario Gustavo; Marighetti, Jorge Omar (Japan Association for Wind Engineering, 2016-10)
      Research and development on Wind Engineering in Brazil and Argentina are mainly concentrated in three institutions: (i) the Laboratório de Aerodinâmica das Construções of the Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul ...
    • Employing wind tunnel data to evaluate a turbulent spectral model 

      Álvarez y Álvarez, Gisela Marina; Demarco, Giuliano; Martins, Luis Gustavo; Puhales, Franciano S.; Acevedo, Otávio Costa; Loredo Souza, Acir Mércio; Bodmann, Bardo Ernst Josef; Degrazia, Gervásio Annes; Wittwer, Adrián Roberto (Science Publishing Group, 2016)
      In this study, spectra obtained from wind tunnel data are compared with a model that describes observed atmospheric neutral spectra. The investigation points out that there is a good conformity between both spectra for ...
    • Interference effects on the wind load evaluation of a high building group by wind tunnel tests 

      Wittwer, Adrián Roberto; De Bortoli, Mario Eduardo; Marighetti, Jorge Omar; Udrízar Lezcano, María Sandra; Loredo Souza, Acir Mércio (Universidade Federal de Rio Grande do Sul, 2015-06)
      El código de viento argentino CIRSOC 102 especifica valores de factor de carga de viento para estructuras de formas regulares. Cuando la estructura tiene formas inusuales o efectos de vecindad significativos, el reglamento ...
    • Turbulence spectral characteristics of surface boundary layer 

      Wittwer, Adrián Roberto; Welter, Guilherme Sausen; Degrazia, Gervásio Annes; Loredo Souza, Acir Mércio; Dorado, Rodrigo; Bodmann, Bardo Ernst Josef; Álvarez y Álvarez, Gisela Marina (Universidade Federal de Rio Grande do Sul, 2015-06-21)
      A spectral analysis from wind tunnel and near-neutral atmosphere data was realized. The measurement spectra are compared with von Kármán and Kaimal expressions and a complementary evaluation based on the previous work of ...
