What is the difference between a hurricane and a nor`easter? What kind of damage can they cause to your building project? Hurricanes and nor`easters can be destructive natural events creating high winds, storm surge, large waves, and causing large amounts of erosion, jeopardizing structures built along the nation`s coastlines. This interactive online course will provide information about how to build to better resist the effects of these storms, what foundation types perform better, and why these storms are so damaging to the built environment. A few case studies will be included to illustrate techniques that are known to improve building performance.
More Information
  • Identify building techniques that can reduce damage from hurricanes and nor`easters
  • Reduce future damage to coastal-built structures caused by sea level rise and coastal erosion
  • Recognize the magnitude of flood loads that can be generated from these coastal storms and the resources available for more in-depth study
  • Select appropriate methods to use when rebuilding damaged structures after coastal events
