CATRisk® offers a broad array of consulting and analytical services to meet the needs of a diverse range of clients, which include civil engineering consulting to insurers and reinsurers, brokers, model developers, corporate risk managers and government disaster mitigation agencies. We work with our clients to understand the nature of a problem in order to develop innovative and customized solutions.

Hazard Assessment

We have a long history of providing site-specific seismic hazard assessment for engineering projects. Using our well-tested and verified software tools and our scientific and engineering expertise in this field, we have conducted seismic hazard assessment for many engineering sites worldwide. Our services include: site-specific seismic hazard assessment and local site effect analyses as well as simulation of strong ground motion time histories.




Vulnerability Assessment

We have a rich database of vulnerability functions for buildings of various taxonomy and also have the expertise and analytical tools to develop site-specific facility and vulnerability functions for specific risk complex through site visit, claim data and further statistical and structural analyses.


Site-Specific Risk Assessment

For single risk with large accumulation of insured values, CATRisk's engineers and scientists are prepared to undertake detailed investigation toward exploring various sources of direct and indirect sources of manmade and natural hazards. The study also could extend in field survey towards reliable assessment of vulnerability of building and facilities. Our risk analyses for such facilities include assessment of probable maximum losses (PML) and annual mean loss (AML).




Real-Time Damage and Casualty Assessment

CATRisk® has been deeply involved in the design and development of real-time casualty and loss estimation models for the local and regional government to help the management of aftermath of natural catastrophes and help early response efforts. The primary objectives for such tool as decision support system are to help disaster managers towards rapid emergency response and to minimize the secondary catastrophe damages and humanitarian crises. We have been recently working with local government in developing countries towards development of real-time damage and casualty estimation systems.
