Using BlueBEAR to predict the wind characteristics around high-rise buildings

In this case study we hear from Jose Romero, a PhD student in Civil Engineering, who has been using BlueBEAR to predict wind characteristics around high-rise buildings. You probably don’t realise it, but wind is probably influencing your actions on a daily basis! It may be that you choose to grab a coat before leaving … Continue reading “Using BlueBEAR to predict the wind characteristics around high-rise buildings”
