FireAUS – Detailed Loss Model

Intelligently Designed. Location and Portfolio Level Intelligence.

The latest release of FireAUS, covering bushfire and now grassfire risk across Australia, represents another leap in the quantification of risk at the location and portfolio level. Building on our recognised machine learning capability, peer reviewed research and on the ground post-event surveys, FireAUS 3.0 has national coverage at the individual address level.

HailAUS – Detailed Loss Model

Intelligently Designed. Location and Portfolio Level Intelligence

For 25 years, Risk Frontiers has been leading the development of natural catastrophe models for the Asia-Pacific region. Available on our Multi-Peril Workbench, HailAUS is now offered through the Oasis loss modelling framework and commercially via ModEx.

QuakeAUS – Earthquake Loss Model

Local Expertise. Local Knowledge.

QuakeAUS is built on Risk Frontiers extensive knowledge and expertise in Australian seismic hazards. We participated in the development of Geoscience Australia’s 2018 National Seismic Hazard Model (NSHA18), which includes the Risk Frontiers earthquake source model.   We use the ground motion predictions equations of Somerville et al. (2009) developed specifically for Australia.

QuakeNZ – Earthquake Loss Model

A high-resolution model, where most needed

QuakeNZ covers earthquake ground shaking and liquefaction damage throughout New Zealand. The model features a variable resolution grid that is as fine as 500 m in the populated regions. Each grid cell contains no more than 200 addresses. The liquefaction hazard is mapped at an even finer resolution of 16 m to capture the extremely localized risk related to soil type, distance to water, and slope.
