  • Greeting from Director of Wind Engineering Research Center, Steering Organization, Press release

  • Starting application of 2018 fiscal year
  • Facilities and database of TPU available for Joint Usage/Research Center Program

  • Adopted research theme and research meetings of 2017 fiscal year

Tokyo Polytechnic University Wind Engineering Research Center was founded in 2000. Since then we have been actively engaged in educational and research-based activities and have been working together with domestic and overseas educational/research institutes. In 2003 we initiated the 21st Century Center Of Excellence Program [Wind effects on Buildings and Urban Environment], and in 2008 we initiated the Global Center Of Excellence Program [New Frontier of Education and Research in Wind Engineering]. Through those programs we have amassed achievements in education and research.
In 2013 we were selected for the Joint Usage/Research Center Program by MEXT as [Wind Engineering Research Center] and are actively promoting more collaborative researches based on past research results utilizing our facilities. Currently under the JURC Program, 13 specific researches and 13 general researches have been running.
