will cover the basics of boundary layer wind tunnel testing and how it is used
to aid structural design. The different testing approaches used for a range of
structures from buildings, to bridges, to smaller structural components will be
described. Participants will be shown how to identify projects that would
benefit from wind tunnel testing, or where code-based approaches would not be
adequate. Examples of wind tunnel test results, and how to interpret them, will
be shown. Participants will learn how to conduct basic checks on the validity
of wind tunnel test results, and include questions to ask of wind engineers.
