Abstract
The problem motivating this research is the author’s belief that residential high-rise building’s vulnerability to hurricanes is not being addressed. Therefore, the general idea behind the research is to find out where those vulnerabilities are by looking at hurricanes science, significant historical hurricane events, building failures, building codes, and building guidelines. From the information gathered the author will propose mitigation strategies that when implemented respond to these vulnerabilities. Then using a theoretical case study location on the south shore of Oahu, Hawaii, to show how the mitigation strategies can be employed to protect those living in the coastal areas.
