The Structural Design Day 2021

Wind: Aerodynamics in the spatial and structural design of our built environment

Wind and wind loads are important factors when we plan and build our cities and design our structures. In this year's edition of the Structural Design Day you will hear experts present how they handle wind in high rise buildings, and researchers on wind tunnel tests as well as virtual city models.
