|Title:||Risk modeling & vulnerability assessment of infrastructure systems due to catastrophes||Authors:||Goh, Danny Xiang Hui.||Keywords:||DRNTU::Engineering::Civil engineering||Issue Date:||2011||Abstract:||In recent times, there has been a significant increase in the number of catastrophic incidents worldwide. These catastrophes can be attributed to a variety of reasons ranging from climate change to poor governance and infrastructure planning, and yet still some more are due to the increased activity of the earth’s crusts. This trend seems set to continue unabated with mounting losses incurred by the insurance industry. As such, damage assessment and mitigation tools to deal with such tragedies have become more essential for areas that are prone to such events, and even more so for those living in poverty.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10356/44279||Rights:||Nanyang Technological University||Fulltext Permission:||restricted||Fulltext Availability:||With Fulltext|
