I, as a high school intern, worked on Andrew Rock’s master’s thesis. In this project, we are working to develop an inflatable storm surge barrier that can be installed on a shoreline to protect structures along the shore from a hurricane’s (or some other majors storm) storm surge. My specific portion of the project was to develop an excel spreadsheet with equations relating different parameters from the structure. The parameters included the different forces exerted on the membrane (both internally and externally) and the structure’s ability to deal with these forces.
