Responding to Disaster in the Internet Age

by Hinman Team

That’s all changing as our society becomes immersed in the internet age. Researchers estimate that in the year 2002, 23 Exabytes of data was recorded and replicated. While that is an incredible amount of data, we now upload and transfer that much every week. On average, in the minute it takes to read this, over 200 thousand photos will be uploaded to Facebook and over 300 thousand tweets will be sent. This explosion of information is changing how our society responds to disasters in a variety of ways.

Hinman Remembers: Fukushima Daiichi

by Eve Hinman

This month we remember the earthquake and tsunami which occurred almost three years ago on March 11, 2011 off the Pacific coast of Japan in Tohoku. It was the largest earthquake known to occur in Japan and the fifth largest on record since about 1900. However, it is most remembered because of the disaster it triggered at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power facility. It was the largest nuclear incident since the 1986 Chernobyl disaster.

This Month, Hinman Remembers: Haiti

by Evan Reis & Eve Hinman

Humans have a natural, reactive impulse after a catastrophe to leap into action to protect ourselves for the next time disaster strikes.  Paradoxically, another characteristic we have is to quickly forget the severity of disasters with time. This month we remember the Haiti Earthquake, which occurred four years ago on January 12, 2010.

The Right Tool for the Job

by Hinman Team

As an avid home improvement enthusiast, I quickly learned that availing yourself with the most appropriate tool greatly expedites any task and boy, do they have a tool for everything. I think this also translates well into the field of engineering – specifically blast engineering – there are a number of ways to calculate a blast load and the effect of this on your building – but which is the most appropriate for you? Well, it depends…

Rising Tides

by Eve Hinman

I have been talking about coastal flooding and sea level rise obsessively for several years now I’ve been going to flood conferences where I find myself to be usually one of the few from the left coast. It is another indication the local engineering community does not take water threats seriously. Not like New Yorkers who understand and obsess about water like I do. New Yorkers are my people!
