Background and theme

We are in a rapidly evolving world full of challenges related to wind: wind hazards, extreme weather (including wind) due to climate change, new challenges associated with super tall buildings and long-span infrastructures in urban areas, rising demand for wind related actions to strengthen urban resilience, contributing to low carbon emission, and increased safety and serviceability performance in today’s metropolitans.

Fortunately, substantial advancement in wind engineering has been observed in the past decade, including engineering applications of ever taller and ever longer buildings and infrastructures, availability of more advanced wind tunnel testing facilities, progress on computational wind engineering, application of AI and big data, as well as vast adoption of wind energy. Those advancement reflect constant efforts of researchers and practising engineers in the field to pursue a better and more sustainable urban environment.

In this light, the 5th HKWES Workshop ‘Advancement in Wind Engineering for a Sustainable Urban Environment’ is organised to provide a platform for scholars, practising engineers and research students in Asia to share the latest progress on wind engineering, explore opportunities for further discussion and collaborations, and develop solutions for a sustainable urban environment.

Target audience

  • Research scholars and students in universities or academic institutes
  • Professional engineers from structural, civil, MEP and building physic disciplines (consultants, contractors, engineers or technical officers in governments)
  • Other professionals interested in wind engineering


A Comprehensive programme has been designed in this two-day workshop (9:00am – 6:00pm, Hong Kong Time), with highlights below:

  • Top-class keynote and invited speeches contributed by globally or regionally reputational research scholars and wind experts;
  • 20+ high quality oral presentations from regional academia and industry professionals ;
  • An inspiring cross-disciplinary lunch sharing session (13 July) from industry experts;
  • A half-day wind training course (14 July afternoon), focusing the detailed application of 2019 Hong Kong Wind Code, to industry professionals and practitioners

The detailed programme is to be updated later.
