Cost-effective mitigation strategy development for building related earthquake risk


The primary objective of this research is to develop cost-effective strategies to mitigate damage, injury and business disruption associated with the most vulnerable buildings in Australian business districts to earthquakes. 

Cost-effective mitigation strategy development for flood prone buildings


The main objective of this research is to develop cost-effective strategies to mitigate damage to residential buildings from riverine floods. 

Improving the resilience of existing housing to severe wind events


This project aims to investigate windstorm risk mitigation by: (a) developing vulnerability models for structural strength of housing from field and laboratory observations and (b) evaluating potential upgrading and retrofitting solutions for residential structures.

Impact forecasting: what does the forecast mean?


This project will develop a pilot capability to predict impacts of extreme wind and rainfall on the built environment with the goal of improving timely mitigating actions by a wide range of stakeholders. This pilot project will initially focus on east coast low events that often severely impact the subtropical east coast of Australia via a range of hazards including high wind and rain.
