Mitchell is researching the effect of the building envelopes flexibility and the type of openings in the envelope have on internal pressures induced by atmospheric wind flow, with the aim to improve internal pressure design in industrial type buildings.

Student project

This project is focused on improving the resilience and survivability of structures to high wind loads. By calculating the internal pressures for industrial buildings, the research will give an accurate overall net wind load for a wide range of scenarios, enabling a consistent, optimal design for buildings. This will lead to improvements to wind loading codes and standards in cyclonic and non-cyclonic regions around Australia.
