The foundation of Dr. Burton's presentation is wind engineering. This incorporates aspects of many disciplines, including meteorology, statistics, fluid dynamics, structural and mechanical engineering. The presentation will highlight the important early considerations in designing for wind effects and will illustrate various wind tunnel testing tools used to quantify wind loading. BMT Fluid Mechanics is equipped with some of the world's most state-of-the-art testing facilities and their wind-engineering consultants have been providing expert advice for the design of structures affected by wind for over 50 years. At BMT they provide design guidance globally to teams for a large variety of projects, ranging from buildings, bridges, telecommunications towers, stadia and other wind sensitive structures.
