Thank you for visiting the NatHaz(Natural Hazards) Modeling Laboratory at the University of Notre Dame.
The mission of this laboratory is to quantify load effects caused by various natural hazards on structures and to develop innovative strategies to mitigate and manage their effects. The characterization and formulation of dynamic load effects due to wind, waves and earthquakes on tall buildings, long-span bridges, offshore structures and other structures is carried out via fundamental analytical computational methods, and experiments at laboratory, and full-scale. The NatHaz Group focuses on developments in cyberspace involving virtual organizations, crowdsourcing, computational intelligence, sensing and actuation, web-enabled analysis and design, scientific machine learning (SciML) and cloud-based computing. The NatHaz Modeling Laboratory is directed by Dr. Ahsan Kareem.
