Spring wind no breeze at UN
The shifting earth, as it rolls over to greet
the spring., carries with it the pressures and
forces of winds that lift skirts, break umbrellas
and makes it difficult to navigate to classes on a
The Nebraska plains are home to a belt of
the Westerly winds, according to meteorologist
Gordon Lippsrt of the National Weather
Service. The University campus puts a crimp in
the Physics Dept.
A number of buildings on campus form
clusters that encourage the wily wind, and, in
effect, form virtual wind tunnels.
, The garden area next to Oldfather Hall and
the underpass between Burnett Hail and -Oldfather
are well known to any female in a
short skirt and could be the home of Aeolus,
god of wind and king of his own island of .
Many a "dead" umbrella has been strewn
along the paths between Ferguson, Stout and
Hamilton Halls, another cluster of buildings
that accentuates whipped air currents,
according to one architecture student.
The winds that wander through the
courtyard of the Harper, Schramm and Smith- -Residence
Halls complex, and even by the
north side of the Nebraska Union caust ! ,iny
to slow their steps.
No studies of wind currents have been made
oh the UNL campus, according to members of
the School of Environmental Development and
the Phhsics Dept.
In a recent journal of the Architectural
Institute of America (AIA), an article points
out that when a building rises 10 to 15 stories
above its neighbor, it can have "dramatic and
sometimes dangerous impact upon wind flow."
Coupled with an unusually windy spring this
year, Lippet said that the tall structures on
campus have two effects on the winds passing
"A funneling effect through passageways
causes the wind to move at an even faster rate,"
he said. "And when the wind hits the side of
the building, it splits and some wind moves
straight down, which makes the wind at the
base much stronger than the wind that moves
over the building,"
The AIA journal article stated that wind
speed can increase to three times that at the top
of a building.
Apparently for many UNL students, getting
to class is more than a breeze.
