Our Mission

The Wind Engineering Research Laboratory is developing the techniques and physical resources necessary to extend current understanding of windstorm hazards and their impacts on structures.

Our mission is two-fold: to pursue focused, strategic wind engineering projects and to provide an academic environment that invites multidisciplinary collaboration through shared resources.

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is uniquely well equipped to address the future of wind engineering.
