Engineering Tsunami Resilience
In this episode of Voice of the Sea, we investigate how engineers study and design buildings to withstand destructive forces, like tsunamis. We’ll learn about the dangers to Hawai’i, the plan for vertical evacuation in Honolulu, and the new building code. We talk with distinguished professor, Dr. Ian Robertson, award-winning engineer Gary Chock, and Dean of the University of Hawaii’s College of Engineering, Dr. Ron Riggs. — Season 5, Episode 11.
