BUILDING EXPOSURE STUDY IN THE STATE OF FLORIDA AND APPLICATION TO THE FLORIDA PUBLIC HURRICANE LOSS MODEL
Modeling hurricane events with models such as the Florida Public Hurricane Loss Model (FPHLM) is essential for insurance and reinsurance companies to estimate projected losses. Additionally, the models can be used by ...
EVALUATING SOIL PROPERTIES AND CYCLIC LOADING EFFECTS OF FLORIDA’S CLAYEY SILTY FINE SAND SOILS ASSOCIATED WITH HIGH PILE REBOUND
Throughout the state of Florida, pile rebound has been encountered while driving large displacement piles. During periods of excessive rebound, the piles could not achieve further penetration and could require an excessive ...
Modeling long-term deformations of unbound pavement materials using the miniaturized preburemeter creep data
This research was undertaken to study the predictive capability of the pressuremeter test for characterizing in situ creep behavior of unbound pavement layers. Although the creep potential of granular pavement materials ...
Maintenance and Improvement of the Florida Public Hurricane Loss Model
The Florida Public Hurricane Loss Model (FPHLM) predicts insurance losses due to hurricane events. This thesis describes maintenance tasks of the vulnerability component of the FPHLM. First, it explores the applicability ...
