Stochastic Simulation Of Hurricane Wind And Rain Hazards, Prashant Rawal Dec 2019

Stochastic Simulation Of Hurricane Wind And Rain Hazards, Prashant Rawal

All Dissertations

Quantification of hurricane hazard, which includes wind, rainfall and storm surge, is essential for engineering design as well as financial loss assessment. The objective of this study is to develop a stochastic simulation framework which integrates the simulation process of hurricane rainfall and wind hazard. This study is divided into two parts. The main objective of the first part is to develop a method for the estimation of the hurricane wind field parameters radius to maximum wind speeds (R_max) and Holland B parameter (B). The second part develops a stochastic model to simulate hurricane rainfall, which is named the ‘NormRain ...
