The Wonders of Wind Engineering

Western Engineering News | November 4, 2011

The Second Annual Western Engineering Leader’s Reception took place Nov. 3 in Toronto, ON with approximately 70 alumni and friends in attendance.

The event featured a panel discussion with three expert guests including: world renowned structural engineer, Leslie E. Robertson, DSc’88; SawTeen See, managing partner at Leslie E. Robertson Associates; and Richard Nemeth, a registered architect from New York.

The theme of the discussion was the wonders of wind engineering and its effects on tall structures. What better place to host the event than the tallest structure in Canada – the CN Tower?

Throughout the evening, guests had the opportunity to network with 70 other alumni and friends including Western Engineering’s wind experts: Peter King, director of the Boundary Layer Wind Tunnel Laboratory, Greg Kopp and Mike Bartlett, lead researchers at the Insurance Research Lab for Better Homes; and Horia Hangan, project leader for the new Wind Engineering, Energy and Environment (WindEEE) Dome.

Western’s President and Vice-Chancellor, Amit Chakma, brought messages from the University and closing remarks.
