Center for Hazard Mitigation and Community Resilience, Missouri University of Science and Technology


Through transdisciplinary research and education, we are dedicated to mitigating the harm from hazards and building resilient civil infrastructure (e.g., buildings, bridges, roads, railways, and electric power transmission lines) and social infrastructure (e.g., extreme weather warning communication, risk awareness and funding for community resilience). Hazards include, but not limit to, extreme winds and storms (e.g. tornadoes, hurricanes, storm surge and downbursts), floods, earthquakes, extreme heat, wild fire, and man-made hazards.
  • Simulation of natural hazards and their actions on built environment (e.g., tornadoes, hurricanes with storm surge, flooding and winter storm)
  • Hazard mitigation and community resilience by conducting collaborative research between Engineering and Social Science, Economy, Psychology and Humanities
  • Improvement of risk awareness of natural hazards and informed decision-making through Virtual Reality Animation and innovative messaging infrastructure
  • Computational Wind Engineering (CFD simulations)
  • Structural health monitoring and condition assessment (Linear/Nonlinear system identification and damage detection under multi-hazard environments)
