Welcome The Asia-Pacific Conferences on Wind Engineering (APCWE) are international events conducted every four years under the umbrella of the International Association for Wind Engineering (IAWE). They began with the First Asia-Pacific Symposium on Wind Engineering at Roorkee, India in 1985, and are held in the Asia-Pacific region mid-way between the four-yearly International Conferences on Wind Engineering. The APCWE conferences are international events regularly attended by 200 – 300 wind engineering researchers and practitioners from around the Asia-Pacific regions.
The previous conferences were held in Roorkee India, Beijing China, Hong Kong, Gold Coast Australia, Kyoto Japan, Seoul Korea, Taipei Taiwan, and Chennai India in 2013.
The Ninth Asia-Pacific Conference on Wind Engineering is being organised and hosted by the University of Auckland, Auckland, New Zealand. The University of Auckland is New Zealand’s pre-eminent research-led institution, and the Faculty of Engineering has been active in Wind Engineering research and testing since the 1970s. In 2015 it constructed a world-class Boundary Layer Wind Tunnel to further increase its capability in Wind Engineering research.
The Organising Committee is delighted to host APCWE-IX, and great efforts are being undertaken to ensure its success. We take pleasure in inviting academicians, engineers, scientists, technologists and architects to actively participate in the Ninth APCWE. APCWE-IX aims to provide a knowledge platform for exchanging state-of-the-art research findings and practical applications in all areas of wind engineering, and to further enhance international collaborations.
This Figshare site contains approximately 200 peer-reviewed submitted papers which were presented at the conference, as well as the Keynote papers and bios of the Keynote presenters.
The conference is being held in December when you can expect the weather to be warm and pleasant. We urge you to allow time to see some of our wonderful tourist sites and beaches while you are here.
