This in-person workshop will give prospective users the opportunity to learn about how they can initiate and engage in impactful wind hazard research through the experimental and user support resources provided by the University of Florida (UF) NHERI Experimental Facility (EF). The workshop will present research opportunities that are enabled by the unique simulation and measurement capabilities of the Boundary Layer Wind Tunnel at UF, with a focus on new experimental resources that support high-throughput testing, cyber-physical testing, and simulation of non-synoptic flow conditions.
The recent addition of a simultaneous 12-probe flow measurement system, an extended automated roughness grid, and an upgraded high-throughput test section will be highlighted and demonstrated. Participants will hear from guest speaker leaders in the simulation and modeling of wind hazards and have the opportunity to initiate proposal development activities one on one with UF NHERI PIs. The workshop will take place on April 11th, with an optional dinner on the evening of April 10th.
Travel Funding and Eligibility
Attendance is restricted to those who are or will be eligible to apply for NSF funding by the fall of 2023. The EF will provide travel funding (domestic airfare and up to two hotel nights) for all selected workshop participants.
Thank you for your submission. We look forward to seeing you in Gainesville.
