Dr Sharad Tripathi, CEO, Fluidyn, will do a presentation on
Cyclone Impacts on Establishments and Infrastructure
Risk Assessment and Modelling : Approach and Recommendations
The satellite imagery has brought some degree of forecasting of the intensity of a cyclone, sufficiently in advance. It can be efficiently used to model not only the wind and rain storm load in general but also ensure continued functioning of critical infrastructures such as airports, stations, hospitals for bringing in relief and power stations for power supply for hospitals, public utilities etc.
Detailed modelling of large public buildings- train stations, hospitals, airport terminals, etc., and their support dependence under varying wind load or other secondary effects such as flooding, fire, impact from flying objects can help better design and prevent damage to such equipment and openings. We'll explore some recent accidents such as Fukushima nuclear reactors, tropical hurricane on airport buildings etc. where modelling has helped in improving the safety.
