Wind engineering research group

The discipline of wind engineering grew out of the activities of a number of research establishments around the world in the 1950’s and 1960’s, including the National physical Laboratory in Teddington and the Building Research Establishment in Watford.

The UK Wind Engineering Society was not however formed until the early 1990’s, and has now grown to a organisation of over 100 individual and corporate members (visit for futher details).

Staff at the University of Birmingham are heavily involved with the work of the Society, and serve on its committees and working groups. In addition staff are involved with the work of the International Association of Wind Engineering ( which brings together wind engineers from around the world..
