CPP’s team of technical experts and industry innovators share their knowledge across the globe. Join us on one of our many discussions to gain insight into the varying effects of wind and incorporating innovative techniques into your planning and designs.
Wind loading codes and standards are designed to provide reasonably reliable design for the majority of buildings and structures but they don’t cover unusual forms or, often, wind-sensitive components. On Tuesday, March 17th, join CPP Vice President Dr. Roy Denoon at The Institution of Structural Engineers in Glasgow as he presents “Wind Engineering – Beyond the Code.” Education about wind engineering can be sparse, and a large proportion of wind-induced failures result from unidentified wind-sensitivity during design. The presentation will examine code limitations and present examples of under-designed structures and components, as well as describe alternative design approaches.
