CSU Researcher Guo Earns NSF Award to Study Methods of Assessing Wind Damage Risk

Posted: May 1, 2024

MPC researcher and CSU civil and environmental engineering assistant Professor Yanlin Guo was recently awarded a five-year National Science Foundation Faculty Early Career Development Program (CAREER) award of $542,000 to develop new methodologies for assessing wind damage risks to building exteriors.

"With this award, I want to approach issues of resilience holistically over different stages of my career," Guo said. "My previous work looked at damage to building exteriors from windborne debris, and now I will pursue the damage from wind pressure considering the previously unexplored variables."

Her research will address variables such as the impact of urban development, climate change, and site-specific wind direction on the wind load, or pressure, sustained by glass building exteriors.
