Accuracy and Precision in the Analysis and Design of Floating Bridges

Description:

Measurements of wind characteristics and the kinematic performance of floating bridges are proposed. The relationship between these measurements is then used as a check of detailed analyses and a statement of accuracy. The use of these measurements and the detailed analytical results are applied to the initial design of these bridges.
