Professor Barry Vickery of the University of Western Ontario will deliver the seventh biennial Scruton lecture organised by the Wind Engineering Society at the ICE on 7 November.

His subject will be 'Methods of predicting and controlling the behaviour of tall slender structures in wind' and will review the various approaches that have been developed to predict cross wind loads. Vickery will also cover aspects of controlling these loads by aerodynamic means and by the use of damping systems. Vickery has consulted on many projects, including a 300m steel cable-stayed tower in Sydney and a 270m reinforced concrete tower in Canberra, Australia. The lecture is free and starts at 5.30pm.
