In this paper, the work that has been done in several laboratories and academic institutions in India in the area of wind engineering in the past 20–30 years has been reviewed. Studies on extreme and mean hourly winds, philosophies adopted in model studies in wind tunnels and some of the important results that have been obtained are described. Suggestions for future studies are indicated.
