This presentation investigated the scope of 4 project aims:

  1. Identify and broadly classify Pre-80s house types across Australia wrt; Structural system, material, age, etc.

  2. Assess the vulnerability of these house types wrt wind hazard (Wind regions in AS/NZS1170.2 or AS4055) based on CTS tests and damage investigations.

  3. Specify targeted, practical, structural retrofits to reduce vulnerability.

  4. Provide structural system models and wind load data for vulnerability analysis for GA to develop economic models.
