Presentation Overview:

Hurricane Florence dumped as much as one meter of water on parts of Southeastern North Carolina. This occurred only one year after massive flooding in Houston, Texas.

Epic rainfall events, while still considered ‘”epic,” may no longer be infrequent. What does this mean for engineering design standards? What storms should we consider? Where is it OK to develop? What guidance does the engineering code of conduct provide

Insights to these questions and more are the focus of this presentation.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn how storms that once were considered “epic” now are occurring with somewhat regular frequency.
  • Discover how designers/engineers are tasked with the impossible: preventing large scale flooding.
  • Understand how moderately-sized events provide an opportunity for engineering innovation.

Presenter:

William Hunt, North Carolina State University
