(Department of Publicity) From May 11th to 12th 2019, jointly sponsored by STDU and the Technological Innovation Center of Wind Engineering and Wind Power Utilization of Hebei Province, the 2nd Symposium of Bridge and Structural Wind Engineering was successfully convened at Shijiazhuang Tiedao University. This is also the Conference of Technical Committee of the Technological Innovation Center of Wind Engineering and Wind Power Utilization of Hebei Province. More than 70 professionals and scholars both home and abroad attended the meeting.

At the opening ceremony, Member of the Standing Committee of STDU, Liu Jinxi, delivered an opening speech and expressed his heartfelt welcome to experts attending the meeting. The former chairman of International Association for Wind Engineering and foreign member of Chinese Academy of Engineering Yukio Tamura, Professor of STDU and Secretary of the Party Committee of Hebei Institute of Water Conservancy and Electric Power Chen Jinjie, Member of the Standing Committee of STDU Liu Jinxi, and General Manager of Northern Engineering Design & Research Institute Co., Ltd. Wang Zhenzong together unveiled the nameplate of the Technological Innovation Center of Wind Engineering and Wind Power Utilization of Hebei Province. Prominent specialists across the country in the field of wind engineering addressed the ceremony and congratulated on the establishment of the technological innovation center and the achievements of the operation of the wind tunnel laboratory at its 10 years’ anniversary.

Against the current background of key engineering construction of Hebei Province, the symposium carried out an in-depth discussion focusing on how the studies in wind engineering of STUD can exert its strength and enhance its level and competitiveness in terms of scientific research, team building, talent recruitment and cultivation, technical service, application and transformation of achievements, as well as the competitiveness upgrading of enterprises in order to better serve national economic construction and social and economic development of Hebei Province. Amid the discussion, 12 Chinese and foreign specialists and scholars gave reports on specific issues like the research progress of wind engineering, wind disaster, research technology of wind engineering test, wind environment and wind-induced snowdrift, wind-induced vibration of structure and control measures, wind power generation, wind-resistant design methods of international engineering against the background of Belt and Road Initiative, and classical aerodynamics, etc. They had a deep communication and heated discussion with other professionals, teachers and students at present.

 

The conference is an important booster for raising the position and prestige of Shijiazhuang Tiedao University in the aspect of the scientific research related with wind engineering. It has prompted the research of wind engineering and the construction of related disciplines, talent recruitment and cultivation, and the integrated industry-university-research development.
