Seminar: Wind Effects on Buildings
Posted by Tasha Weiss on April 19, 2011 at 9:01 AM.

Wind forces can cause movement of buildings of all heights that can result in both temporary and permanent changes in the materials and performance of the building. To gain a better understand of these effects, engineers and others involved in the planning, design, construction, and operation of high-rises and other types of buildings should attend the CCHRB (Chicago Committee on High Rise Buildings) Seminar on Wind Induced Building Movement: The State of Art Measurement, Mitigation and Accommodation on Thursday, June 9, at the Harris Bank Auditorium in downtown Chicago. Early registration discounts are available until May 15. Register online at the seminar registration page here or download a form for mail-in registration.


Early registration pricing is $100 for members of CCHRB or co-sponsoring organizations, including AISC, and $125 for non-members. Registrations received on or after May 15 are an additional $25 for both members and non-members.


This half-day seminar will cover four important topics related to wind induced building movement:


1) actual measurement vs predicted movement;
2) human response to building movement;
3) methods of mitigation of movement; and
4) methods of accommodation of movement.


Registration includes a continental breakfast. For more information about the seminar, visit the CCHRB website at
