The Department of Wind Engineering and Fluid Mechanics offers two master thesis in the field of wind engineering. The following topics are available for those who are interested in the dynamics and aeroelasticity of wind turbine support structures:
On Tuesday, October 17, Prof. Vincent Denoël from the University of Liège, winner of the Junior Award of the International Association for Wind Engineering, visited the working group for a scientific exchange on "Equivalent Static Wind Load and Vortex-Induced Vibrations". The topics discussed can be found in the attached program.
Dr.-Ing. Francesca Lupi, as spokesperson for the Ruhr Regional Group of the German Society of Humboldtians (DGH), invites to the DGH Annual Meeting 2023 on 27 and 28 October in Bochum. A more detailed article on this has now been published on the Ruhr-Universität website under News.
"Die Jahrestagung der Humboldtianer findet erstmals an der Ruhr-Uni statt. Das Programm richtet sich auch an die interessierte Hochschulöffentlichkeit. ..."
The Wind Engineering and Fluid Mechanics (WiSt) group represents teaching and research at the faculty in structural aerodynamics, in the related fields of dynamics of structures - especially wind-excited random vibrations - and probabilistic safety theory, and in fluid mechanics in civil engineering. It evolved from the Aerodynamics in Civil Engineering Working Group, which was active in these research areas from 1974 to 2001. ASIB operates the boundary layer wind tunnel of the Institute of Structural Engineering of the Ruhr-University Bochum, which was built in 1977 under the leadership of the then owner of the working group, Prof. Dr.-Ing. H.-J. Niemann, and has been successfully maintained and expanded since then.
