Scope

The conference is intended to gather researchers and engineering consultants who will share the latest results of research and successful case studies in which wind is a relevant engineering and design phenomenon. The field ranges from applied meteorology, fluid dynamics, wind energy, civil engineering and city planning to design of cladding and roofing.

Topics

The 13th International Conference on Wind Engineering invites papers on all wind engineering topics, including related wind energy topics. We welcome contributions discussing new data, methods and tools as well as design solutions in wind engineering. Experimental and numerical techniques will be discussed, such as wind tunnel research, full scale measurements and computational fluid dynamics techniques and applications. Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Aerodynamics: including buildings, vehicles, and sports
  • Agricultural wind engineering
  • Arts & architecture
  • Benchmark studies (e.g. BARC)
  • Bluff body aerodynamics
  • Cable aerodynamics
  • Codification, norms and standards
  • Coupling mesoscale meteorological and computational wind engineering models
  • Deposition and impacts from wind, sand, dust, rain, hail and snow
  • Development, validation and application of turbulence models
  • Education in wind engineering and wind energy
  • Experimental data for model development and model validation
  • Extreme wind events and analysis
  • Field measurement and wind tunnel techniques
  • Fire modelling
  • Loads due to hurricanes, tornadoes, and downdrafts
  • Local wind loads on roofing and cladding
  • Long span bridges
  • Meteorological phenomena: including hurricanes, tornadoes, and downdrafts
  • Natural ventilation
  • Non linear behaviour
  • Numerical wind field simulation
  • Short term forecasting
  • Site assessment and micro-siting
  • Stochastic modelling and simulation
  • Structural dynamics
  • Towers and masts
  • Transport, dispersion and deposition of pollutants
  • Urban and pedestrian thermal and wind environments
  • Wind energy resource assessment
  • Wind farm aerodynamics
  • Wind loads on low-rise buildings
  • Wind loads on tall buildings
  • Wind loads on towers, nacelles and other structures
  • Wind measurement and monitoring
  • Wind over complex topography: including terrain and built environments
  • Wind profiles
  • Wind turbine wakes and wake interaction
  • Wind-related disaster risk reduction
  • Wind-structure interaction
The conference has special sessions within the above mentioned topics. Colleagues are invited to come forward and take the lead of such a session of presentations and discussions (see Special Session for details).
