WeSCoS Colloquium #04 “Study on the impact of strong winds on buildings and towns in future climates”
Presenter: Yasuhiko Azegami (Takenaka Research & Development Institute, Takenaka Corporation)
Date and time: 3:00 pm-, February 27, 2023
In recent years, very powerful typhoons have landed in Japan, causing a lot of damage. The 6th IPCC report predicts that global warming will cause more powerful typhoons in the future, raising concerns that damage to buildings and cities from strong winds will increase. The impact of global warming should be taken into consideration when designing and constructing buildings whose service period is about 100 years. Therefore, in this report, we introduce the results of investigating the impact of strong winds of future typhoons on buildings and towns using numerical simulations and ensemble climate prediction data.
