Summary and Info
This collection contains 106 papers presented at the ATC & SEI Conference on Advances in Hurricane Engineering, held in Miami, Florida, October 24-26, 2012. When Hurricane Andrew wreaked havoc on South Florida and Louisiana 20 years ago, the engineering community learned a great deal about how powerful storms affect the built environment. These papers demonstrate the application of lessons learned to reduce losses from subsequent hurricanes and to make communities more resilient to natural hazards. Topics include: building codes; building envelope; building envelope and large structures; building roofs; flooding; infrastructure; large structures; meteorology; risk modeling; and wind loading. Structural engineers, architects, building code officials, and risk managers will gain important insights into the prevention and mitigation of damage from hurricanes and other powerful storms
