The Logo of the 5th European and African Conference on Wind Engineering has been obtained by re-elaborating a drawing by Leonardo da Vinci, representing a flying sphere carrying a male body in its center. In the papers, a short view of some of Leonardo’s idea related to wind and flight are illustrated. Finally, the “flying sphere” is described and, after a research work carried out by CRIACIV, the results of some wind tunnel tests are reported.

Abstract

The Logo of the 5th European and African Conference on Wind Engineering has been obtained by re-elaborating a drawing by Leonardo da Vinci, representing a flying sphere carrying a male body in its center. In the papers, a short view of some of Leonardo’s idea related to wind and flight are illustrated. Finally, the “flying sphere” is described and, after a research work carried out by CRIACIV, the results of some wind tunnel tests are reported.
