2019 Wall of Wind Experimental
Facility User Workshop

June 14, 2019 | Miami, Florida

The NHERI Wall of Wind (WOW) Experimental Facility is hosting a one-day user workshop at Florida International University (FIU), in Miami, FL. The focus of the workshop is to:

  1. Provide researchers with information on the capabilities of the NHERI WOW EF for advanced natural hazard engineering research.
  2. Explore opportunities to use the NHERI EF for unsolicited, CAREER, and other types of NSF proposals. One session will be dedicated to “Preparing Competitive NSF Proposals (including CAREER Proposals).”
  3. Describe the procedures to perform large- and full-scale experiments using the NHERI WOW EF.
  4. Provide one-on-one sessions between EF’s team members and workshop participants to discuss research ideas and experimentation plans for NSF proposals
  5. Discuss the NHERI Science Plan focusing on key research areas emerging in natural hazard engineering

This onsite workshop will provide participants with valuable information about the resources and services available at the NHERI WOW and how to better engage the EF for obtaining NSF funding for natural hazards mitigation research and other basic science research. The workshop also will include a tour of the NHERI WOW EF and a demonstration of the EF capabilities.

Financial support for travel will be limited and priority will be given to faculty planning to submit NSF proposals that intend to use the NHERI WOW EF. Financial support for attending the workshop will be awarded in order of registration (hotel and flight arrangements will be managed by FIU up to $850 per individual).

We look forward to welcoming you to our workshop!
