Resumo

GOLIGER, AM. Wind-tunnel testing of sports stadia to optimise their use and safety. J. S. Afr. Inst. Civ. Eng. [online]. 2010, vol.52, n.1, pp. 0-0. ISSN 2309-8775.

Several wind-tunnel studies of sports stadia were recently carried out at the CSIR's Boundary-Layer Wind-Tunnel Laboratory in Pretoria. This paper gives a brief background to wind-tunnel modelling, highlights the relevant aspects of representing large structures and demonstrates the applicability and usefulness of boundary-layer wind-tunnel technology in addressing design challenges and optimising large-scale sports facilities.

Palavras-chave : design; sports stadia; wind-tunnel testing.
