Topology behind Wind Engineering

John Hancock, the tallest skyscraper that faced problems in early 1970’s is the reason behind the researchers and students to start a research on wind engineering at Northeastern University. The tower was shaped and designed like a knife that can control or influence people inside. It would further pop out and crash the streets below.   John Hancock was taken as an interesting example to deal with...
