Wind Load on Structures, 7-8 June 2018,  MOE ,  Copenhagen, Denmark 


A two day seminar that encompasses recent advances in the modelling and simulation of wind loads on structures, where the structures expressed range from the built environment and on to wind turbines. 

The aim is to utilise recent advances in both experimental and computational techniques to discover and support new best practices in this engineering domain. In that manner, the  topics cover advances in CFD (turbulence modelling), FSI, Stochastics , Wind tunnels, calibration methods, and onto validation and verification.

Special Interest Group (SIG): Another key aim is to develop a SIG where we can continuously develop and qualify methods under V&V, leading to a BPG book on the topic.
