Dr. Roy Denoon is Vice President and Principal of CPP Wind Engineering. He has specialized in wind engineering for 25 years, working on a wide range of projects in Australia, the US, and globally, from major sports stadia to some of the world’s tallest buildings. He has published numerous magazine and journal articles in the field, as well as co-authoring the CTBUH Guide to Wind Tunnel Testing of High-Rise Buildings and editing the Australasian Wind Engineering Society Quality Assurance Manual for Wind Tunnel Testing of Buildings and Structures.
His interest in wind engineering began during his undergraduate studies at the University of Edinburgh. Roy then moved to Australia where he began his high-rise research with field monitoring of the Sydney Harbour control tower, from which he gained his research Masters degree from the University of Sydney.
This was followed by the beginning of his career in wind engineering consultancy and wind tunnel testing, culminating in working on many of the stadiums and arenas for the Sydney 2000 Olympics as well as providing on-site wind monitoring and consultancy during the games. At the same time, Roy completed his PhD on Designing for Wind-induced Serviceability Accelerations in Buildings, which was awarded by the University of Queensland.
Roy joined CPP in 2004 following several years working in Hong Kong where he was responsible for the wind engineering of such iconic tall buildings as Union Square in Hong Kong and the CCTV Headquarters in Beijing, amongst many others. Since joining CPP Roy has been responsible for numerous tall building projects throughout the world and now leads the structural wind engineering group of the company.
He has recently supervised the instrumentation of Burj Khalifa in Dubai to monitor its long-term dynamic response characteristics and is enjoying analyzing the results. Roy maintains his research interests in the wind engineering of tall buildings and regularly publishes and presents at international conferences.
