    Endless Column is one of the most beautiful and intriguing sculptures of modern art movement. Construncted in 1938 by an engineer team leaded by Georgescu and under direct direct supervision and design of its author C. Brancusi, the column stays in Tg Jiu, Romania, as a commemorative monument for the victims of the First World War. It’s amazing stability against wind challenged many researchers to conduct a detailed study and to express technical opinions which could explain the exact cause of Endless Column’s “aeroelastic indifference”. Complete tests were carried out in October 2004, in the Wind Tunner Labortory of Yokohama National Univerity, including sectional two dimensional and aeroelastic semi rigid tests in smooth and turbulent flow for various angles of attack and wind speeds
