SubjectWind loads
AbstractProfessor Tanaka?s contributions to bridge aerodynamics are well known to wind engineers world-wide. Also known are pioneering studies conducted at various international laboratories under his supervision for many of the world?s milestone bridge structures. Tanaka also made significant contribution to the building envelope community through his novel ideas by blinding wind engineering principals with building science theories. The objective of this presentation is to highlight these hidden secrets to the Canadian Civil Engineers.
