Venue:
JW Marriott Marquis Miami

Hurricane engineering has evolved since Hurricane Andrew wreaked havoc on South Florida and Louisiana nearly 20 years ago. One of the most devastating natural disasters in United States history, Andrew taught us much about how these powerful storms affect our built environment.

You are invited to join and discuss how design practices are evolving to meet the building and infrastructure challenges presented by powerful hurricanes. This conference is being designed to define what was learned, illustrate how these lessons have affected losses, and bridge the gap to identify what must be learned.

The Conference Program

The conference's programme is built around topics such as:

  • Wind engineering
  • Coastal flooding
  • Engineering for the building envelope
  • Low-rise buildings
  • High-rise buildings
  • Infrastructure
  • Meteorology and oceanography
  • Risk modeling and forensic engineering

Target audience

The ATC-SEI Advances in Hurricane Engineering is the first of its kind to bring together practitioners, educators, federal and state governments, students, and businesses who focus solely on matters related to the technical aspects of hurricanes. It’s also the first to provide a forum for engineers and architects to discuss ways of improving building performance during hurricane events.

The following fields have a vested interest in the work of hurricane engineering:

  • Engineering consultants
  • Architects
  • Building officials
  • Technical managers
  • Educators
  • Students
  • Researchers
  • Building managers
