Recently, Jiufeng Green Forum at Beijing Forestry University was held in the lecture hall of the East Wing Building. Yukio Tamura, the foreign academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, the Japanese Academy of Engineering, the Indian Academy of Engineering, and the Academia European, was invited to give a research presentation entitled Wind-induced Damage to Buildings and Mitigation Measures at the forum. The dean of the School of Soil and Water Conservation presided over the meeting and more than 200 faculties and students attended the forum.
Academician Yukio Tamura detailed the wind-induced damage mechanisms of different types of buildings in strong winds, tornadoes, downburst and other weather conditions, and proposed corresponding control measures from the perspective of disaster prevention and control. Yukio Tamura also discussed the wind-induced damage patterns and characteristics of trees based on the criteria for determining tornado levels.
During the question-and-answer session, academician Yukio Tamura exchanged ideas and had in-depth discussions with the faculties and students on relevant issues in the field of wind engineering.
Yukio Tamura is an internationally renowned wind engineering expert who has made important and creative contributions in the fields of structural wind engineering and wind disaster prevention, winning the 2017 Chinese Government Friendship Award. He served as the president of the International Associations for Wind Engineering, the president of the International Group for Wind-Related Disaster Risk Reduction, and the executive committee member of the World Wind Energy Association.
