About the Course

The technology of flood mitigation is rapidly evolving as natural disaster concerns are consistently significant and the design community continues to push the limits of what is possible.

This course will cover the evolution of floodproofing systems, leading to a new generation of flood mitigation solutions—floodproof windows. These systems offer the ability to passively withstand impact, as well as push the limits of size in a design.

Upon completion of this course, the participants will have a thorough understanding of the new applications and specifications for oversized, impact, flood windows and flood walls systems that can be applied today in the rapidly evolving flood mitigation industry.

Learning Objectives:
• Explore existing dry floodproofing systems and new innovations being used to push the limits
• Identify, discuss and compare the differences between active and passive dry floodproofing solutions
• Explain the different types of testing needed for impact windows, flood windows and flood walls
• Understand the applications of these new systems and how they can protect without human intervention
