The Wind Engineering Research Team was created at the VUB in the beginning of
2007, in the framework of a collaboration agreement between the Department of
Mechanical Engineering at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel and the
IDR/UPM Institute of the Polytechnic University of Madrid. The main objective
of the team is to collaborate with the Belgian industry interested in
wind tunnel research projects (architecture, civil and mechanical engineering, ...).
The Wind Engineering Research Team offers to the industry a wide experience in
wind engineering projects carried out in a wind tunnel, from wind pressure
measurements in scale models for the construction of emblematic buildings,
to the direct wind forces measurements on building construction elements,
or wind velocity measurements in the surroundings of civil structures.
