WHAT IS WIND TURBULENCE?

Think about chaotic movement, the unstable flow of wind… this is what wind turbulence is. If you’re still not clear, remember the last time you were on an aeroplane and there was turbulence. It’s not a nice experience.

WHY IS WIND TURBULENCE SO IMPORTANT IN CONSTRUCTION?

cranedown_large.jpgIt’s very simple, assume your hands and arms are the wind, and a small bar of metal is a crane. Now try to bend it applying continuous force, you will probably bend it (unless the metal bar was too big to start with!). But it is very unlikely that the bar would snap. This is a continuous and steady flow of wind.

Now bend the metal back and forwards, you will see what happens very quickly, the metal will snap in half (eventually). This is wind turbulence for you, a chaotic pushing and pulling by the wind on any structure and that is what it makes it dangerous.

In some of the windiest places in the world, for example, in locations where you might see wind turbines. Projects are often stopped because the flow of wind can eventually break a structure.
