Welcome to the Australasian Wind Engineering Society, your source of information on all wind engineering related matters.

The Australian Wind Engineering Society (AWES) was formed in 1985 and in 1998 changed its name to the Australasian Wind Engineering Society to reflect the Trans-Tasman nature of the membership. The Society’s objectives are the promotion and advancement of the practice of wind engineering and industrial aerodynamics. The AWES is a non-profit organisation with strong links to both academic and industrial engineering communities.

Membership is open to any persons with interests in these areas.
