Its main objectives are:
- To evaluate and quantify wind effects in dense urban areas with an European wind climate, in terms of wind effects on people, buildings, other structures, and urban built environment.
-To improve the design tools available to engineers and urban planners to allow for such effects with a view to improving the quality of the urban environment and mitigating windstorm impacts and reducing wind induced failure.
-16 European countries (and Canada) have joined the action; about 100 researchers have been involved in the different working groups. Details on the Action can be found on the following web site:
COST action C14 has started in Sept. 2000 and will finish in May 2004 with this final International Conference.
