Improving the resilience of existing housing to severe wind events


Typically, older houses do not offer the same level of performance and protection during windstorms as houses constructed to contemporary building standards. 

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


Many of us live in homes with vulnerabilities that contribute to community wind risk. 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.

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. The research will provide evidence-based retrofit strategies for decisions concerning the buildings with the greatest vulnerability in Australian communities.

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.

Experimental testing of residential building materials exposed to inundation


The main objective of this research was to assess the strength and durability implications of immersion of key residential building materials/systems in slow water-rising conditions. The research will help to ascertain where deterioration due to wetting and drying needs to be addressed as part of repair strategies.
