Don’t miss the final two seminars in a series announced by Chris Baker of the University of Birmingham.


Because of the Covid19 pandemic, opportunities for the international wind engineering community to meet physically have been very much restricted and are likely to remain so for at least the next year. To enable the community to continue to interact with each other, at least in a virtual way, the University of Birmingham is organizing a series six seminars via Zoom from October 2020 to March 2021. These are sponsored by the IAWE and will hopefully have a significant international audience. Each seminar will last around an hour and a half to two hours, and will consist of a main speaker for around 30 minutes followed by further short contributions or a panel debate. There will also be an opportunity for online discussion by those attending.

Programme and Keynote Speakers

  • Thursday February 11th 2021. Wind loading code developments. (Svend Ole Hansen, Svend Ole Hansen ApS).
  • Thursday March 4th 2021 – Wind-related Disaster Risk Reduction: Current Status and Future Prospects (Prof Yukio Tamura, Chongqing University)

Each seminar will consist of a main presentation followed by further contributions or a panel debate, and audience discussion. Registration details, seminar programme and speaker and talk abstracts will be posted on the links above as they become available. Recordings of the presentations will also be posted after the seminars.
