Abstract

An independent review is presented of the procedures employed by Crouch, Hogg & Waterman (CHW) in their assessment of the likely aerodynamic effects on the proposed Scalpay Bridge. The review identifies the principal design criteria relevant to the aerodynamic and structural dynamic performance of the Scalpay Bridge as prescribed in BD 49/93. On the basis of data and information supplied by CHW, an assessment is made of the degree to which these criteria are satisfied. It is concluded that there are several sensitive areas in the design analyses undertaken by CHW that should be reconsidered in view of the apparent susceptibility of the bridge to aerodynamic effects. In particular, it is recommended that the response of the bridge to vortex excitation and turbulence, and the narrow stability margin against galloping, be investigated further
