Wind Engineering is the rational treatment of the interactions between wind, in the atmospheric boundary layer, and man, in its manifold activities on the surface of the earth.
The Wind Engineering and Structural Dynamics Research Group (WinDyn) at the University of Genova, Italy, has been working in this topic, for over 40 years, at the academic, educational and technical level, with a homogeneous and interdisciplinary approach.
Our main research topic
Atmospheric physics, meteorology and climatology
Wind measurement, modelling and simulation
Wind-excited and aeroelastic response
Wind effects on infrastructures
Nonlinear dynamics and stability
Human-induced vibrations of footbridges
