Engineering Projects


Recent engineering projects have focussed on wind effects on low-rise buildings including transport of wind borne debris (tiles and shingles), wind loads of roof-mounted equipment and wind loads on solar panels. Dr. Kopp has also worked extensively as part of the Boundary Layer Wind Tunnel Laboratory on many high-rise buildings and long-span bridges. Unusual aerodynamic projects have included wind effects at Amen Corner of Augusta National Golf Course (for Sports Illustrated) and wind loads on the Golden Boy statue atop the Manitoba Legislature in Winnipeg. Additional aerodynamic projects have included flow measurements within automotive cooling systems.
