 International Workshop on Base for Introducing Talents of Civil Engineering Discipline

was successfully held in Chongqing, China

 

CONFERENCE SUMMARY

International Workshop on Base for Introducing Talents of Civil Engineering Discipline was successfully held from October 18 to 19, 2018 in Chongqing, China. The Workshop was co-hosted by Base for Introducing Talents of Discipline to University on High-performance Wind Energy System and Effective Operation (Chongqing University), Base for Introducing Talents of Discipline to University on Wind-sensitive Infrastructure and Wind-induced Disaster Mitigation (Beijing Jiaotong University) and School of Civil Engineering of Chongqing University. It is organized by Journal of Building Structure and supported by the Department of Science, Education, Culture and Health Experts, State Bureau of Foreign Experts Affairs.

Based on the annual academic meeting of Base for Introducing Talents of Discipline to University on High-performance Wind Energy System and Effective Operation (HPWES) and Base for Introducing Talents of Discipline to University on Wind-sensitive Infrastructure and Wind-induced disaster mitigation (MWDWSI), the international workshop has invited 30 domestic and foreign high-level experts to deliver their keynote speeches and exchange the latest academic progresses. The theme of this workshop involves characteristics of extreme winds, bluff body aerodynamics, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), wind-resistant design of large-scale structures such as long-span structures and high-rise buildings, conditional assessment and health monitoring for wind-sensitive structures, wind resources assessment and wind power forecast, new high-performance structure of wind turbine, and disaster-resistant performance of large-scale wind power facilities under extreme conditions.

To promote Chinese colleges and universities to be world-class, “Project of innovation and intelligence-importing for some disciplines of Chinese colleges and universities (111 Project)” has been jointly organized by Ministry of Education and State Administration of Foreign Experts Affairs since 2006. The project will establish some disciplines frontiers with strong innovation ability and upgrade the scientific renewal and peers competition of Chinese universities. The State Bureau of Foreign Experts Affairs and the Ministry of Education of China have successively approved the establishment of the Base for Introducing Talents of Discipline to University on High-performance Wind Energy System and Effective Operation (Chongqing University) and Base for Introducing Talents of Discipline to University on Wind-sensitive Infrastructure and Wind-induced Disaster Mitigation (Beijing Jiaotong University).
