Chapters specialize in a selected approach and supply an summary of the system’s functionality, following through a dialogue of the method, its harm, the emergency reaction, and get better. every one bankruptcy finishes with observations and recommendations.
This monograph may be of specific curiosity to civil engineers, managers, planners, and executive officers charged with preserving lifeline infrastructure platforms in the course of severe wind occasions and different common hazards.
