Damage to Wine storage in earthquake regions

Toppled and broken wine barrels were a casualty of the south Napa earthquake on August 24, 2014, resulting in lost inventory, revenue, and disruption of business operations before harvest time. PEER, the Pacific Earthquake Engineering Research Center, has conducted considerable research to understand and improve the seismic performance of wine making facilities.

Urban RAT tool download

The tool described operates in ArcGIS 10.x and Google Android and is designed specifically for the collection of building inventory data and so contributes to the adaptation of an existing standardized tool, FEMA-HAZUS, for seismic risk assessment of Canadian municipalities. HAZUS uses standardized classification tables for general building stock and consists of building type and occupancy.
