Assessing Storm Surge Risk and Hurricane Frequency ModelingJuly 17th, 2012 - Hamilton, Bermuda
We are pleased to offer a complementary seminar on July 17th, 2012 at the Fairmont Hamilton Princess in Hamilton, Bermuda. ARA's renowned scientists, engineers and business leaders will offer timely discussions to improve your ability to assess hurricane risk to insurance portfolios. We will introduce ARA's storm surge model for U.S. hurricane which expands the range of explicitly modeled perils in ARA's HurLoss hurricane model to wind pressure, wind-borne debris, rainfall-induced damage and storm surge; offering the most detailed view of hurricane risk available. We will also address important considerations when modeling hurricane frequency under long-term and WSST climate conditions.

ARA staff will attend and present at the Third Advanced Workshop on Innovations and Modeling for Sustainable and Resilient Concrete Pavements. The workshop aims to bring together experts in concrete materials characterization, mechanics, modeling, and design to critically discuss and develop concepts to address existing limitations, lack of knowledge, and future direction for improvement of concrete pavement analysis, design, and construction.
NATMEC 2012/ ICWIM6June 4-7, 2012, Dallas, TX
ARA employees will present at the 6th International Conference on Weigh-In-Motion (ICWIM6) will be held in conjunction with the North American Travel Monitoring Exposition and Conference (NATMEC'2012). The conference is designed to address a broad range of technical issues related to weighing vehicles in motion, including providing access to the latest research and emerging technologies, analysis and application of the WIM data for improving transportation systems. The combined conference will provide a unique opportunity for traffic monitoring professionals from around the globe to meet, exchange information and address shared challenges. It is envisioned that the technical issues addressed in ICWIM6 will be well-aligned with the theme of the NATMEC'2012: improving traffic data collection, analysis and use. April 14-16, 2012

ARA staff members will participate in the Cat Model comparison session as well as provide presentations on a variety of scientific and engineering components of our U.S. hurricane catastrophe model - HurLoss™. October 24-26 2012 / Miami, Florida
ARA's IntraRisk Division is proud to participate in the ATC/SEI sponsored Hurricane Engineering Conference. Peter Vickery, PhD, P.E. and Frank Lavelle, PhD, P.E. along with other staff members will present recent advances in hurricane hazard modeling.
Additionally, Jeff Sciaudone, P.E. will present his research on the evolution and current state of the mandated insurance discount program in Florida, its basis in wind engineering, and its implementation via wind mitigation inspections. Below is an abstract of his presentation.
Lessons learned from building performance in Hurricane Andrew led to immediate improvements in the South Florida Building Code in 1994 and the eventual creation and adoption of the statewide Florida Building Code (FBC) in 2002. Alongside these building code improvements, numerous public and private programs to encourage wind resistant construction were also created. Concurrent with the adoption of the FBC, Florida Statute 627.0629 required all property insurers in Florida to recognize the wind resistive benefits of the FBC in their residential rate filings by February 2003. In effect, this statute requires insurers to provide discounts for homes that are built in accordance with the FBC, as well as to homes that were built prior to the FBC, but included similar wind-resistive features. The creation and implementation of this insurance incentive program has faced many challenges including; determination of the appropriate discounts by feature or combination of features, inspection protocols for documenting wind resistive features, dealing with intentional and unintentional errors introduced in the inspection process, and ensuring the actuarial soundness of the program.
