Inundation and wave loading
processes in hurricane scenarios

July 24, 2020 | 10am - 11am PST

Abstract

Inundation events during tropical cyclones repeatedly cause extreme damage and loss of life. This webinar examines the processes causing these events, how they may be simulated, and the effects of inundation on communities within the inundation zones. Theory, computation, and field work are all represented. The talk will conclude with suggestions about future directions for research and development to reduce damages and increase resilience.

Presenter

Andrew Kennedy is Professor in the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering & Earth Sciences at the University of Notre Dame. He has worked in many aspects of Coastal Science and Engineering, with a recent focus on storm inundation processes and damage.
