Abstract

Damage investigations following wind events in all regions of Australia have shown that buildings can be vulnerable to the effects of wind and wind-driven rainwater. Damage that may affect the functionality of the building need not be conspicuous, but may be expensive to repair in order to return the building to service. Wind forces, wind-borne debris and water penetration have been identified as the major causes of damage during high wind events. Resilience assessment tools to estimate the performance of buildings in future wind events were developed for use on buildings in Queensland, but have the potential to be used for most building types throughout Australia. The tools use a resilience model that is based on studies of building behaviour in wind events from damage surveys, augmented by research projects on a number of structural elements.
