Mitchell Humphreys Research Leader

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.
