Wind Tunnel Testing Facility Tour
This tour of a wind tunnel testing facility will show how wind effects are replicated at model scale. It will look at wind environment studies for planning approval, wind effects of tall structures, masterplan developments, stadia and bridges, model manufacture and data acquisition. The tour will include the following elements:
- How models are manufactured and instrumented
- Watch a wind tunnel test take place
- Learn about the hardware and software required to complete a successful wind engineering project
- Learn about wind effects in the built environment, legislation in place for planning applications and how to take account for wind effects in building design
The tour takes place at the BMT facility in Teddington, TW11. Contact Alex Turpitt, UK and Regional Manager, to book for a maximum of 10 people. The tour takes 3.5 hours and lunch will be provided.

Wind Effects on the Built Environment
The learning aims of this seminar are to enable an understanding of the properties of wind that are important in building design, the nature of wind flows around building structures, the various effects that wind has on buildings, assessment methods and timing during the design process.
The intended outcome is that the architect has increased awareness and appreciation of these issues rather than specific expertise.
