Post-disaster, rapid response research reconnaissance is one of the most powerful means to understand the effects of natural hazards on the nation's built environment. The structural engineering community's ability to advance windstorm design and construction methodologies is greatly informed by systematically documenting the performance of residential homes, buildings, and other civil infrastructure under actual hazard conditions.
StEER’s mission is to deepen the structural natural hazards engineering (NHE) community’s capacity for reliable post-event reconnaissance by (1) promoting community-driven standards, best practices, and training for RAPID field work, (2) coordinating official event responses in collaboration with other stakeholders and reconnaissance groups; and (3) representing structural engineering within the wider extreme events (EE) consortium in geotechnical engineering (GEER) and social sciences (SSEER) to foster greater potentials for truly interdisciplinary reconnaissance.
The StEER network is led by:
- Dr. Tracy Kijewski-Correa, Director (University of Notre Dame)
- Dr. Khalid Mosalam, Associate Director for Seismic Hazards (University of California, Berkeley)
- Dr. David O. Prevatt, Associate Director for Wind Hazards (University of Florida)
- Dr. Ian Robertson, Associate Director for Assessment Technologies
- Dr. David B. Roueche, Associate Director for Data Standards
The development of the StEER network is graciously funded by the National Science Foundation under EAGER award number 1841667, provided through Program Manager Dr. Joy M. Pauschke.
