9780128010600: Handbook of Coastal Disaster Mitigation for Engineers and Planners

Handbook of Coastal Disaster Mitigation for Engineers and Planners provides a critical evaluation of the need for disaster preparation in coastal areas where about 60% of the world's population lives, and where 65% of the cities with a population of over 2.5 million are located.

Written by an international panel of experts in the fields of engineering and risk management, the book presents a coherent overview of the last ten years of coastal disaster risk management and engineering during which some of the most relevant events of recent time have taken place, including the Indian Ocean tsunami, hurricanes Katrina and Sandy in the United States, and the 2011 tsunami in Japan.

  • International case studies offer practical lessons on how disaster resilience can be improved in the future
  • Contains tools and techniques for analyzing and managing the risk of coastal disasters
  • Provides engineering measures for mitigating coastal vulnerability to tsunamis, tropical cyclones, and hurricanes
  • Includes crucial tactics for rehabilitation and reconstruction of the infrastructure

From the Back Cover:

Written by an international panel of experts in the fields of engineering and risk management, The Handbook of Coastal Disasters Mitigation: Lessons Learnt for Engineers and Planners presents a coherent overview of 10 years of coastal disaster risk management and engineering, during which some of the most relevant events of recent time have taken place, including the Indian Ocean tsunami, hurricanes Katrina and Sandy in the United States or the 2011 Japanese tsunami. The Handbook’s nine part treatment begins with an authoritative engineering analysis of recent Tsunami, and Tropic Cyclone events. This is followed closely by chapters covering topics such as: analyzing future threats, how to conduct a vulnerability assessment. The authors then introduces engineering mitigation measures including: Structural measures (hard and soft), and Post-Disaster Reconstruction. Inaddition, Handbook of Coastal Disasters Mitigation: Lessons Learnt for Engineers and Planners describes the model and analysis used, making it easy to reproduce in other areas at possible risk, and will also identify clearly past problems and future areas of research.
