Wind Engineering Research Center

Wind Engineering Research Center (WERC-TKU)

 

Established in 1998, the Wind Engineering Research Center at Tamkang University (WERC) is the leading wind engineering research institute in Taiwan. The goal of WERC is to pursue academic excellence and provide solutions to engineering problems. Its research team covers a wide range of areas in the field of wind engineering, such as tall building aerodynamics, cable supported bridges, large span roof structures, mitigation of wind-induced vibration, indoor and urban ventilation, wind tunnel testing, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulation, full scale monitoring, information technology applications, and wind code developing.

 

Over the past decade, the center has conducted numerous integrated research projects for government agencies, such as the National Science Council (NSC) and the Architecture and Building Research Institute (ABRI), and held international conferences, workshops, and seminars. In terms of engineering, aside from conducting a great number of wind tunnel tests for pedestrian comfort evaluation and design wind load, the center has also developed a user-friendly system that conforms to current Taiwanese wind code practice. This wind code system has been made available for free public use, and has received positive feedback from industry experts. The long term objective of the center is to become a world renowned wind engineering research institute and a first-class solution provider for the local wind engineering community.
