WIND LOADING ON FALSEWORK - PHASE I

Full size installations of Modular Tubular Falsework were tested in a wind tunnel. The tests considered various tower spacings, wind velocities to 100 mph, oblique incidence of wind, and varying number of tower units in the wind stream. The angle of wind incidence and the number of towers in the wind stream were found to be major factors in determining the total wind load on a falsework bent. A design method, based on an empirically established wind velocity model and the test data, is presented. /FHWA/
