Wind engineering is a branch of civil engineering that deals with the effects of wind forces on structures and infrastructure. Wind engineers test models of bridges and tall buildings and use the results to design these structures to resist damage from wind-induced forces, such as hurricanes and tornadoes. Wind engineering may be considered by structural engineers to be closely related to earthquake engineering and explosion protection.
