The International Association for Wind Engineering is founded for two principal aims -
(i) Organisation of international meetings
(ii) Liaison with national and international organisations working in similar fields.
The Association will be governed by a Steering Committee which will meet every four years at the venue of an International Conference. The Chairman of the Association is to be the Chairman of the Organising Committee for the next International Conference.
The Steering Committee will consist of the Regional Secretaries and of one member from each country represented at the International Conference plus an additional member for those countries with a large number of representatives. These representatives are to be invited by the Chairman following prior consultation with national wind engineering organisations to seek their nominations and with delegates attending the International Conference in the case of countries without identifiable national organisations. The Chairman of the Association may co-opt a further five representatives to the Steering Committee.
The association will be administered by the Chairman through Regional or National Secretaries as shall be defined at each Steering Committee Meeting.
The association will use the Journal of Wind
Engineering and Industrial Aerodynamics, published by Elsevier, as its official organ, and
will report to members through this publication.
There will be no
formal membership of the Association and membership will be deemed to be those who have
registered for the International Conferences.
Committee is vested with the responsibility for accepting the invitation of a country to
be host for the next International Conference. The venues for the International
Conferences are to rotate in sequence through three regions as follows:
(i) Europe and Africa
(ii) North and South America
(iii) Asia and Australia
In the event that a Steering Committee is not in
possession of an acceptable invitation to host the next International Conference it will
remain the responsibility of the incumbent Chairman, on behalf of the Steering Committee,
to establish, by invitation, a suitable host country and Chairman for the next
