Join our online Wind Engineering Q&A session on Google Hangouts.  This will be your chance to talk about wind loads with our Principal Wind Engineer, Dr Seifu Bekele.  Our aim is to help engineers and architects understand wind and use it to their advantage in the design process.  There will be no agenda, however here are the typical topics we tend to come across with our work:

  1. Damper design and building motion.  Which standard should we use?  What return period is appropriate?  How do we minimise or eliminate the need for an active damper system?
  2. Internal pressures.  How do we model and design for internal pressures that may change with respect to building openings?
  3. What type of wind tunnel test method is appropriate for different building designs?  Aerolastic, high-frequency force balance, surface pressure etc.

These discussions allow us to share our current areas of research which we do in partnership with the Monash University.  We want to teach more people about wind, so we're offering a Google Hangout session for anyone to call into for free.  If you're interested, please fill in the form below and we'll send you the information.  Date and time will be determined based on the time zones of people who register.  We'll try to pick a time that works for everyone.

    Looking forward to learning what others have to share with respect to wind design. It seems to have become significantly more involved and I'm not sure I really understand why.
