Using EEFIT observations acquired from the aftermath of three tsunami events (Samoa 2009, Japan 2011 and Indonesia 2018), the presenters will indicate the variety of impacts on buildings and other structures in the coastal zone.
To appreciate the sometimes-unexpected impact of tsunamis in the coastal zone.
To learn about the impact of earthquakes on infrastructure
To complement the EEFIT training sessions for earthquake reconnaissance mission team leaders and deputy team leaders
Architects, geologists, geotechnical earthquake engineers, structural engineers and engineers undertaking design of coastal structures in tsunami-prone regions.
Joshua Macabuag has a background in building design with a number of UK consultancies, a PhD in building damage predictions for tsunami, and now consults in catastrophe risk modelling to the World Bank and the (re)insurance sector. He is also an Urban Search & Rescue (USAR) Engineer with the UK team SARAID, with several deployments through both SARAID and the European Union Civil Protection Mechanism.
Alison Raby is a Professor of Environmental Fluid Mechanics at the University of Plymouth, where she leads the COAST Engineering Research Group. Alison is an expert on the interactions of extreme waves with coastal structures, having obtained her doctorate in extreme wave overtopping at the University of Oxford. She has been a member of EEFIT missions to Samoa (2009), Japan (2011 & 2013 follow-up), and Indonesia (2018).
Dr Sean Wilkinson is a structural engineer specialising in earthquake engineering. His research aims to build up resilience among communities through understanding how critical infrastructure (CI) responds in a disaster and its role in protecting communities.
