The winning poster was based on a paper "Modelling of hydrodynamic loading in soil structure interaction analysis of port structures" authored by Hasib Abdulrazaq, Scot Francis, Niko Karamichalis and Jack Taggart, (now of Arup). The judges were looking for work that added something useful to the existing body of knowledge on earthquake risk and engineering towards a resilient world.
SECED2019 brought together experts in risk, mitigation and recovery from around the world and from a broad range of disciplines, including structural engineering, nuclear engineering, seismology, geology, geotechnical engineering, urban development, social sciences, business and insurance.
