Abstract

The National Science Foundation has reorganized its resilient and sustainable infrastructure (RSI) research program in the last two years. Specifically, fundamental building and structure research is pursued through four programs, namely 1. Engineering for Natural Hazards, 2. Structural and Architectural Engineering and Materials, 3. Natural Hazards Engineering Research Infrastructure, and 4. Geotechnical Engineering and Materials. This reorganization permits more opportunities to propose building research related to wind engineering and wind hazards. In addition, there are many other programs at NSF which can support wind engineering research. Imaginative thinking and incorporation of disciplines other than structural engineering opens a wide variety of programs within NSF that can fund wind engineering research.
