Designing slender structures for wind-induced vibration and fatigue has become an important consideration. 

“The wind-induced response of structures has been a significant subject of engineering research over the past 40 years. Tall, slender buildings, chimneys, antenna towers, high-mast light standards, cantilevered signal structures and, yes, even tall, slender transmission structures can be subjected to wind-induced vibration that results in an excessive vibration response, potential fatigue damage, and even collapse.” [MOORE]
