Benchmark Study, August 04, 2000

Dear Colleagues,

this mail is intended to make the benchmark study on bridge aerodynamics start. So we send you the structural and aerodynamic data related to the Messina Bridge project.

As attachments of this mail you will find a Word file of explanations named: Messina-data.doc (Messina_data.pdf, editor's note).

In this file we illustrate all the structural and aerodynamic data inserted in the other files attached:


(all files in, editor's note)

All this files show a particular form that we have chosen for sharing the data among all the benchmark participants. So we invite you to discuss this kind of formulation and to propose other solutions.

We hope to have a wide feedback and we stay at your disposal for further information.

Best regards

Prof. Alberto Zasso
