Wind Engineering and Environmental Fluid Mechanics
Wind engineering is a branch of civil engineering that deals with the effects of wind forces on structures and infrastructure. Wind engineers test models of bridges and tall buildings and use the results to design these structures to resist damage from wind-induced forces, such as hurricanes and tornadoes. They are also concerned with atmospheric dispersion of pollutants, and the impact of moisture on buildings and their environmental effects, such as the growth of molds.
