Today is Day 1 of the 4th Workshop on Regional Harmonization of Wind Loading and Wind Environmental Specifications in Asia-Pacific Economies (APEC-WW). I presented our country paper/report entitled "Wind Loading in the Philippines: Recent Developments in 2006-2007."
PICE Regional Conferences - Region I/CAR West (Ilocos), Region IV (Southern Tagalog), Region V (Bicol)
I made presentations on 'Typhoon Engineering' at regional conferences of the PICE around Luzon.
The 4th CECAR (Civil Engineering Conference in the Asian Region) was held in Taipei, Taiwan from June 25-28, 2007. Yours truly was co-author and presentor of two papers on wind speeds (wind hazards) and typhoon engineering:
I presented a paper entitled "Historical review of wind speed maps in the Philippines for various purposes: toward further development and use as wind hazard maps under the PICE-DMAPS program" (co-authors: B.M. Pacheco, N.E. Rosaria, L.E.O. Garciano). The idea was to present to a Philippine (civil engineering) audience a similar paper that I was to present at the later 4th CECAR (Civil Engineering Conference in the Asian Region) in Taiwan 10 days after to an Asia-Pacific audience (East Asia, Australia, USA).
A paper entitled "Consideration of dynamic wind effects in the structural design and evaluation of truss-type structures typically damaged during recent typhoons" was presented at the 12th ASEP International Convention (12AIC) held in Manila, Philippines on March 15 and 16, 2007. Following are the details:
