8TH National Conference on Wind Engineering

DECEMBER 16-17,2016


Wind Engineering deals with effects of wind in the natural and the built environment and studies the possible damage, inconvenience or benefits which may result from wind. In the field of structural engineering, it includes strong winds, which may cause discomfort as well as extreme winds such as tornado, hurricane or heavy storm, which may cause widespread destruction. In the fields of wind energy and air pollution, it also includes low and moderate winds as these are relevant to electricity production and dispersion of contaminants Wind Engineering draws upon meteorology, fluid dynamics, mechanics, geographic information system and number of specialised engineering disciplines including aerodynamics and structural dynamics. The tools used are atmospheric models, atmospheric boundary layer wind tunnels and computational fluid dynamics models. Towards sustainable habitat, wind engineering involves among other topics

  • Wind impact on structures (building,bridges,towers)
  • Wind comfort within and around buildings
  • Effect of windon the ventilation sysytem
  • Wind climatology for wind engineering
  • Air pollution buildings

Wind Engineering may be considered by engineering/researchers to have common frontiers with earthquake engineering and explosion protection


The conference is intended for Academicians (from Universities, Institutes), Designers, Engineers, Consultants, Researchers & Members of professional bodies. IIT (BHU) is organizing this conference jointly with ISWE.


The Indian Society for Wind Engineering (ISWE) was established in 1993 and at present its total membership is 537.The main activities of ISWE and organization of National Conference on Wind Engineering(once in two years) and publishing a bi-annual Journal on Wind Enginering. The details about the society and its activities can be obtained from the website http://www.iswe.co.in

    Indian Institute of Technology, Varanasi is a government engineering institution located in Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh, India. Founded in 1919 as the Banaras Engineering College, it became the Institute of Technology, Banaras Hindu University in 1968. IT BHU came into existence in 2012 as an Ili to produce high quality professionals to cater the needs of newly independent India. The institute was granted full autonomy and status of a UT by the MHRD. The Institute offers academic programs at undergraduate, post graduate and doctorate levels at various disciplines. Since its inception, the institute has grown in size and activities with its alumni excelled within the industry, academics and administration both in India and abroad.



    India has entered into a major infrastructural expansion requiring Civil Engineers to play an important role in national building - the second time around after India's Independence in 1947. So, the Department has set its goals for a new era with a technology product -oriented, professional focus, and embarked on undertaking changes towards meeting the needs for the nation. Updating curriculum of academic programs facilities of laboratories (including computer lab with new updated software), including younger students in projects are three important changes that are underway. This crucial effort of the Department of Civil Engineering is steered by its active faculty members.The Department of Civil Engineering with its multifaceted faculty continues to maintain and cultivate its strong links with the infrastructural industry and academic and research institutions both within and outside the country. The Department strives for excellence with the mission to offer world -class undergraduate and post -graduate education, research guidance, professional consultancy and manpowertraining as well as leadership in Civil Engineering.
