Contributions from the field of aerodynamics to the design of very large bridges

The capacity of wind to damage, and even destroy, civil engineering structures has been recorded since ancient times. This paper will briefly discuss the advances in knowledge and tools for identifying the wind-induced load effects and, consequently, for designing bridges. Following a recap of some key historical events, the article will introduce the physical and numerical modeling tools at the designer's disposal [...]
