Wind actions and effects on structures in mixed climate

Please note that the job is no longer active!

Mixed climate is referred to as a climatologic condition in which several different wind phenomena coexist. In temperate countries at mid latitudes, it is typical the occurrence of three phenomena: extra-tropical depressions, thunderstorms and gust fronts. There is a very wide literature on the actions and effects associated with extra-tropical depressions, while the treatments related to thunderstorms and gust fronts are still very limited. The present research pursues a double aim: 1) the formulation of a homogeneous method for the evaluation of the dynamic response due to the actions induced by depressions, thunderstorms and gust fronts; 2) the formulation of a general method for the probabilistic evaluation of the design wind loading on structures subjected to the same phenomena.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
