ABSTRACT

Sugar House Earthquake Mitigation Return-On-Investment   [open pdf - 2MB]

"HAZUS-MH is a Loss Estimation Software developed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and provides a rigorous scientific model to calculate losses due to natural hazards. The Advanced Engineering Building Module (AEBM) was used to perform a Level 3 analysis of the Sugar House parcels and accounts for a building's structural components and reaction to strong ground motion. This information helps legislators discover how research at the university can benefit the community and state, and the public understand the magnitude of losses expected in a major earthquake along the Wasatch fault and implement legislation to promote earthquake mitigation."
