A multidisciplinary approach rooted in structural engineering, fluid, and structural dynamics, turbulence, stochastic modeling, computational and experimental methods, and micrometeorology is needed to address the challenges we face concerning wind effects on structures. Notwithstanding the developments made in recent decades in this area, which have indeed enhanced our abilities to better understand and capture the effects of turbulent winds on structures, we are at an appropriate juncture to identify the need for embarking on different physical and computational modeling philosophies and paradigms to meet the emerging challenges. A general overview of the basic techniques for quantification of wind loads and their effects using analytical, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and model-based and data-driven simulation schemes, code and standards-based procedures, and experimental and full-scale monitoring and their hybrid combination and a synopsis of the emerging frontiers will be presented. Recent advances in analysis, optimization, modeling, simulation, and identification tools, modeling frameworks, data analytics, the fusion of machine learning, stochastics and CFD and beyond, and cyberinfrastructure enabled platforms hold the promise of offering better understanding in solving these complex problems. The seminar will provide a guided tour of the state-of-the-art and the next frontiers in the wind effects through the eye of a cyberinfrastructure enabled platform
