Wind and airflow are important considerations when designing infrastructure

WSP Opus Research covers all disciplines required for full-scale and model studies of wind and air flows, including instrumentation technology, aerodynamics and fluid mechanics, vibration and structural dynamics, and wind tunnel testing.

These services are highly valued for a wide range of applications, including:

  • Wind tunnel testing of buildings and structures at model scale
  • Measurement of wind forces on buildings and structures
  • Design of structures for wind effects
  • The response of structures to wind
  • Wind effects on pedestrians
  • Wind speed over hills
  • Air pollution
  • Full-scale testing of wind effects on structures and components
  • Product evaluation - performance relating to airflow
  • On-site wind speed measurements
  • Vibration monitoring
  • Wind energy
