Wind Engineering Services
Wind Engineering Services (WES) are a specialised branch of the Fluids group internationally recognised for its research and industrial consulting activities in the field of wind engineering.
WES employs a number of specialist and experienced staff and research students undertaking a variety of research projects, many of which are closely linked to consulting services.
The Environmental Fluids group of the School of Civil Engineering at The University of Sydney are responsible for undergraduate and postgraduate teaching, of fluid mechanics and dynamics, and research. Staff members of the Fluids group have particular interests in water engineering and wind engineering.
