The California Earthquake Authority (CEA) funded a multiyear, multidisciplinary project coordinated by the Pacific Earthquake Engineering Research Center (PEER). The goal of the project was to characterize and document the seismic performance of wood frame houses with cripple wall and sill anchorage deficiencies and the retrofitted conditions that address these deficiencies.
Moody’s RMS™ was tasked with quantifying the extent to which retrofitting measures can help reduce losses for vulnerable properties in California using their Version 17 North America Earthquake (NAEQv17) model.
Read the white paper to learn how CEA achieved their goals for the project:
- Empower and incentivize homeowners to mitigate their earthquake risk, making communities safer
- Provide earthquake insurance for customers of CEA's participating insurers
- Create a more resilient marketplace for earthquake risk
