20th AWES Workshop - April 8-9, 2021

The 20th AWES Workshop, originally planned to be held in Suva, Fiji, in June (then November) 2020 has been rescheduled to run as a virtual conference in April, 2021. The uncertainty associated with delegate’s ability to travel both within our own countries and also internationally has meant we have had to make the hard decision to postpone and run this event completely online. We understand that this will not be to everyone’s liking, but in order to set a firm date for the event and enable members to have time to prepare their papers and presentations, we felt this was a decision that had to be made. All things going well, we will return to our usual face-to-face workshop-style event for the 21st AWES Workshop, which we hope will be run in mid-2022. We sincerely hope to see you online in April, and as always, if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact the workshop organising committee at chair@awes.org.

Peppers The Sands resort


The organising committee for AWES19 believe they have chosen an excellent location, Peppers The Sands is perched on the northern headland of Torquay at the start of The Great Ocean Road, Victoria.


Peppers The Sands is a contemporary, premium resort. Offering spectacular views of the surrounding greens, sand dunes and cliff-faced coast. AWES have reserved 20 rooms at the Resort for the duration of the workshop.


You are invited to attend the 20th Australasian Wind Engineering Society Workshop to be held on April 8-9, 2021. The workshop will provide a forum for practicing and academic engineers, scientists and architects to present and discuss their latest findings in the field of wind engineering or its associated disciplines. Although being run online, the workshop will allow opportunity for robust discussion of new and existing challenges in the field as well as encouraging networking and the development of new collaborations. A broad scope of presentation topics and attendees are welcomed.

The workshop committee invites extended abstract submissions addressing any wind engineering topic. This may include, but is not limited to: bluff-body aerodynamics, wind effects on bridges and buildings, codification & standards, meteorology and climate change, structural dynamics, wind-driven pollutant or particulate transport, dispersion or deposition, ventilation and human comfort, wind damage and damage assessment, wind hazard, vulnerability & risk, storm surge damage and modelling, wind field modelling (numerical or experimental), forensic engineering, wind energy & wind turbines.
