This project is building on existing research to broaden the knowledge of the vulnerability of Australian building stock to riverine flooding and is identifying suitable retrofitting strategies. Existing building schema have been assessed, both national and internationally. This led to the development of a new building classification schema to categorise residential buildings into a range of typical storey types. Mitigation strategies developed nationally and internationally have been reviewed.
This project is applying physics-based approaches to fire scenarios. It attempts to simulate fire with unprecedented detail and in the process obtain useful application tools for end-users.
