There were some important facts in the past that have influenced the development of structural aerodynamics very strongly. The first important event was the breakdown of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge (USA) in the year 1940. The second moment represents the disaster of the cooling towers at Ferrybridge (England) in 1965. In the year 2010 the first time in history the interesting aerodynamic phenomena was observed on the new-built bridge in Volgograd (Russia). It is likely that this event will also stimulate the additional development of the bridge aerodynamics.
