Roof construction solutions for mitigation and adaptation of the effects of extreme maritime weather 2023-01-06 16:39:47
The project is intended to be integrated in Priority 2: Blue/Green Environment - Specific objective: PO2 · iv) Promoting climate change adaptation, and disaster risk prevention, resilience, taking into account eco-system-based approaches.
It aims to develop strategies to turn buildings of coastal regions more resilient. The structures in these areas are more exposed to maritime storms and extreme weather phenomena, which are more and more likely to occur due to climate changes. As referred, Leslie Storm, which affected Iberian Peninsula in 2018, is an example of how an atypical extreme weather phenomenon can cause major damage and how infrastructures are not prepared to withstand its power.
The main idea of this project is to analyze and evaluate building materials and construction methods, particularly concerning building roofs, when exposed to wind speeds above those they are designed to withstand. In this way, it is intended to outline strategies, identify critical points and improve the design of these structures in order to turn them more resistant to extreme weather conditions.
