Download E-books Advances in Hurricane Engineering: Learning From Our Past PDF

By Lawrence G. Griffis

This assortment comprises 106 papers offered on the ATC & SEI convention on Advances in typhoon Engineering, held in Miami, Florida, October 24-26, 2012. whilst storm Andrew wreaked havoc on South Florida and Louisiana twenty years in the past, the engineering neighborhood discovered greatly approximately how robust storms have an effect on the equipped surroundings. those papers display the applying of classes discovered to lessen losses from next hurricanes and to make groups extra resilient to traditional risks. subject matters contain: building codes; development envelope; development envelope and big constructions; development roofs; flooding; infrastructure; huge constructions; meteorology; chance modeling; and wind loading. Structural engineers, architects, development code officers, and threat managers will achieve vital insights into the prevention and mitigation of wear and tear from hurricanes and different strong storms.
