Transports wind safety
Analysis of the risk involved by cross winds on high speed trains
Meteodyn evaluates the risks to exceed critical wind speeds and measures wind speed thresholds for which trains speed must be reduced to keep the traffic safe and an ongoing service. Strategies of protection are proposed.
Monitoring of transportation systems with real time and forecasted wind maps (ports, roads, aerial cableways…)
The system defines the directional wind speed thresholds to run the alarm or operation procedures (offshore anchorage, tug boats requirements, wind alert systems, traffic stop or diversion…). Alarm frequencies are evaluated according to local climatology.
Buildings and civil engineering structures wind design
Definition of extreme wind speed according to Eurocode standard
Meteodyn helps you to comply with the EC1 European standard by calculating the peak dynamic pressure depending on the coefficients of roughness, orography and sometimes the surrounding building effects.
Assessment of wind pressure features on buildings envelope
For the complex structures (bridges, airports, tall buildings, stadium or large span roof structures…), whose aerodynamics coefficients cannot be provided by the Eurocode 1, wind loads can be assessed by the way of numerical calculations.
Wind safety on construction sites (tower cranes and scaffold)
Assessment of wind overload due to dynamic behaviors or misalignments of tower cranes
To avoid wind induced tipping over of tower cranes, Meteodyn computes, regardless of the site complexity, wind speed peak for a 50-year recurrence interval, at the crane hook level. Meteodyn has developed a specific tool to assess wind overload due to dynamic behaviors of cranes. We use our own tool – DynaGAT – developped by Meteodyn experts.
Wind alert systems design
According to the wind speeds on site and with respect to the documented capability of cranes (legal or given by the operator), Meteodyn brings solution: high winds alert systems (location and settings).
Other wind safety studies
To minimize wind induced risk, we also assess wind conditions for amusement park, lakes, outdoor events, outdoor sporting events…
