To respond to the more frequent and intense wind hazards around the world, Dr. Grace Yan, Associate Professor of Missouri University of Science and Technology, Director of Hazard Mitigation and Community Resilience and of Wind Hazard Mitigation (WHAM) Laboratory, will offer a short course: “Extreme Winds and their Interactions with Civil Structures”. This course will provide the information on the wind effects of extreme winds and hazard-resistant design. It will cover fundamentals of bluff-body aerodynamics, ASCE7-16 specifications on design wind loading, and non-synoptic winds (tornadoes and hurricanes) and hazard-resistant design. The advanced research in WHAM lab will inform teaching.
The course will take place from May 17th to June 14th, for a total of 10 hours.
