“The fascinating challenges of bluff-body aerodynamics”

Posted on by Federico Canepa

Bluff-body aerodynamics is a complex and intriguing field from both the research and engineering points of view. Prof. Guido Buresti (University of Pisa, University of Genova), will introduce the ANIV Young Researchers to such a fascinating world. Flow fields around bluff bodies, aerodynamic forces on them, aeroelastic phenomena and flow-control strategies will be discussed, and open research topics will be outlined by one among the major protagonists of Bluff-Body Aerodynamics worldwide.

The talk will take place by Teams platform on Thursday, October 29th, 2020, 10:00-11:00 (CEST).

If you are not an ANIV-G participant, please register by sending us a message to specifying your given and family names from an address linked to your Microsoft Teams account.


Special Issue of Applied Sciences on Advances on Wind Engineering and Aerodynamics

Posted on by Federico Canepa

Dr. Sara Muggiasca and Dr. Tommaso Argentini are pleased to coordinate, as Guest Editors, the Special Issue of Applied Sciences on ‘Advances on Wind Engineering and Aerodynamics’. They would like to collect new research papers from the wind engineering community with particular reference to:

  • Wind loads on façades
  • Long-span bridge aerodynamic behaviour
  • High-rise building aerodynamic behaviour
  • Wind effects on roofs
  • Atmospheric modelling for civil applications
  • Field measurements and health monitoring
  • Urban flow dispersion modelling
  • Wind environment/human comfort

International Wind Engineering online monthly seminars

Posted on by Federico Canepa

Because of the Covid19 pandemic, opportunities for the international wind engineering community to meet physically have been very much restricted and are likely to remain so for at least the next year.

To enable the community to continue to interact with each other, at least in a virtual way, the University of Birmingham is organizing a series of six seminars via Zoom from October 2020 to March 2021.  These are sponsored by the IAWE and will hopefully have a significant international audience. Each seminar will last around an hour and a half to two hours, and will consist of a main speaker for around 30 minutes followed by further short contributions or a panel debate. There will also be an opportunity for online discussion by those attending.

For the complete list of seminars and for further details, please visit:

Registration details, seminar programme and speaker and talk abstracts will be posted on each seminar’s webpage at the link above as they become available. Recordings of the presentations will also be posted after the seminars.
