A WIND DEPENDENT ADVISORY SPEED FOR ROAD TRAFFIC ON THE MOERDIJK-BRIDGE

EEN WINDAFHANKELIJKE ADVIESSNELHEID VOOR HET WEGVERKEER OP DE MOERDIJKBRUG

Advice is given on the wind conditions under which a fixed advisory speed of 70 km/hour should be established on the moerdijk bridge. The influence of aerodynamic disturbances by wind and the effect of bus and lorry induced aerodynamic disturbances on adjacent vehicle control and performance are considered, and also the possible reactions of drivers and vehicles, such that no transverse displacement greater than 0.8 meter occurs. A height of 12 meters is preferred for the anemometer needed at the centre of the bridge. The results cannot be applied to situations where wind disturbance has obvious deterministical components.
