Understanding the Effects of Severe Windstorms on Buildings – Dr John Ginger, James Cook University

earth and environment, engineering and tech

As natural disasters are affecting an increasing number of people worldwide, risk mitigation by design is of primary concern to engineers. One of those engineers is Dr John Ginger, Professor of Civil Engineering and Research Director of the Cyclone Testing Station at James Cook University, Australia. His team’s research focuses on the effect of catastrophic winds on buildings – principally, the effect of internal pressure and its contribution to the overall wind loads and the resulting structural response. Their work has been pivotal in developing improved building protocols.
