Background and activities
Dynamic modelling and analysis of long span cable-supported bridges subjected to wind loading with emphasis on field measurements
PhD Candidate Aksel Fenerci is currently working on the Hardanger Bridge Monitoring Project. His project work includes analysis of field data, modeling of wind field characteristics and dynamic response analysis of suspension bridges under wind excitation.
His research aims to improve the current understanding of wind-induced dynamic behavior of suspension bridges.
