    Project Details


    Various types of wind-induced mechanical oscillations occur in high voltage overhead lines. These vibrations can lead to damage of fittings and conductors and are the consequence of dynamic stresses caused by alternating bendings in the wires. The development of realistic mathematical models constitutes an important tool in the optimization process relating to the maximal dynamic strains, as it would allow the simulation of many different configurations. The analytical investigations of the two- and three- dimensional models of the wind induced vibrations are the topic in our field. A comparison of the analytical solutions with the numerical investigations is also an object of the research.
