Abstract/ Summary

In this chapter we discuss the approach that was used for the exposure calculations in this project. In section 4.2 we begin with a brief tutorial on the approach. Section 4.3 discusses the development of the approach, both previous to and during the current project. Section 4.4 describes the computer programs used to evaluate exposure at a specific location based on the different ways of summarizing exposure and choice of mitigation strategy. Section 4.5 covers the exposure calculation results for one of the “retrofit distribution” scenarios that were modeled during the course of this project.
