Title: Improving Low-rise Building Performance in Earthquakes and Hurricanes

Prof. Justin Marshall, PhD, PE
Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering,
Auburn University, Alabama, U.S.A.

Summary:

This presentation will provide a summary of the experimental and numerical research related to improving the resilience of low-rise structures to the effects of extreme events like earthquakes and severe wind events that has been completed at Auburn University. The research will focus on low-rise buildings and highlight damage seen in these events and the research identifying the problem in the load path and developing methods to improve the resilience of these important structures.
