Welcome to the UK Wind Engineering Society
The Wind Engineering Society (WES) is an Specialist Knowledge Society of the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) that exists to promote cooperation in the advancement and application of knowledge in all aspects of wind engineering.
Wind Engineering is a wide ranging multi-disciplinary subject concerned with the effects of wind on the natural and built environment. Wind Engineers are involved in managing the risks of wind induced hazards, predicting wind loads on structures and predicting the pedestrian level wind environment. They also work to exploit the wind resource for pollutant dispersion, natural ventilation and as a renewable energy.
The WES organises regular technical meetings in the UK, publishes a quarterly newsletter and acts as a representative body for wind engineering in the UK. It also organises the biennial UK Wind Engineering conference. The WES is also the UK national delegate to the International and European Associations for Wind Engineering.
The WES welcomes all who have an interest in wind engineering, whether in research or in application to design and construction.
