Bridges: Overcoming Environmental Challenges

Wind Engineering

Origins of Wind Science

Eight neglected articles by W.W. Pagon analyzed the impact of wind forces on structures prior to the Tacoma Narrows Bridge Collapse.  Immediately after, these famous articles became must-reads for civil engineers everywhere.
