Papers of Jack E. Cermak

 Collection
Identifier: UCER
Abstract Dr. Jack E. Cermak (1992-2012) was an authority in wind engineering. His groundbreaking research lead to the development of unique wind-tunnel facilities capable of simulating motion in the atmospheric boundary layer. Among his projects, he led important studies of wind impacts on San Francisco's Candlestick Park, the Sears Tower (now called the Willis Tower) in Chicago, and New York City's World Trade Center. Reel-to-reel films, research files and reports, publications, and university...
