How do you effectively measure potential wind and weather damage?
Whether gauging tornado wind pressure or storm wind speeds, Exponent's multidisciplinary wind engineering teams develop and interpret sophisticated simulations and analyses to help clients respond to wind and weather-related hazards.
The nature and magnitude of wind forces on structures are complex functions of shielding, stagnation, and vortex shedding, among other phenomena. More precise mapping of actual wind pressures requires wind-tunnel testing or, in some circumstances, computer modeling of wind flow.
We conduct risk and damage assessments for buildings and structures in hurricane-prone regions to give owners a clear understanding of the current and potential future state of their assets as well as ways to manage risk and recovery.
Our global and comprehensive expertise across industries gives us a deep understanding of current challenges, best industry practices, and the implications of emerging technologies.
