- Outline UFRAS
- Develop a brief understanding of how to use UFRAS
- Develop an understanding of what to do with output from UFRAS

- Go through each sheet of UFRAS
- Explain input/results
- Instruct users’ on how to input data
- Present a synopsis of the function of each sheet

- Objectively and consistently quantifies a risk index for facilities via a matrix

- Facilitates quick and efficient comparison of risk across facilities
- Conducts a hazard assessment and vulnerability assessment
- Output highlights areas of weakness
- Reinforces the suggestion for mitigation measures

- Evaluates the probability and intensity of the 9 potential hazards that could affect a campus
- Data comes from reputable sources
- ASCE 7-05
- NOAA
- County flood maps

- Inputs are normalized relative to hazard intensities across the continental United States
- Inputs are largely static for each campus
- Reference data unlikely to change; thus campuses should not need to adjust these inputs for future use

- Conducted via site visits, discussion with facility personnel, review of drawings/documents
- Inspection checklist is completed while conducting inspection
- 1-5 hours to complete, depending on size/complexity of facility
- Facility conditions change over time, thus the need to reevaluate facilities periodically

- Divided into 5 sections—based on facility components; it is the first 5 sheets in UFRAS
- 92 total questions/statements
- 910 permutations to produce final matrix
- Inspector assigns ratings (usually 1-4) for each question/statement which are input for risk calculation
- Unanswered questions/statements are omitted from risk index calculation

- 1 represents lowest risk
- 10 represents highest risk
- Matrix is normalized by campus

- Based on output from UFRAS:
- Highlights areas of weakness in facility components relative to hazards
- Mitigation measures can be tailored for the weaker areas in the facility

- Once mitigation measures are suggested
- Inspection checklist may be modified to reflect lower vulnerability
- Second matrix is concurrently produced projecting new lower risk

- Inspection checklist may be modified to reflect lower vulnerability

- 11 Total sheets
- 5 sheets make up the inspection checklist
- 1 sheet makes up the hazard assessment
- 1 sheet concisely summarizes input data
- 1 sheet allows users to modify ratings to reflect proposed mitigation measures
- 1 sheet produces normalized output
- 2 sheets produce raw output

- 31 questions/statements pertaining to:
- General facility design parameters
- Site geography
- Vegetation
- Site improvements
- Streets/roads
- Fencing
- Drainage infrastructure

- Utilities on site
- Storage tanks
- Secondary/support structures

- 19 Questions/statements pertaining to:
- Windows and doors
- Flashing
- Closing mechanisms
- Material

- Veneer
- Attachment, configuration, material

- Foundation plane/lowest level floor plane
- Building geometry
- Roof system
- Coping
- Drainage

- Windows and doors

- 15 Questions/statements pertaining to:
- Geometry of structure (plan and elevation)
- Design loads
- Structural system
- Redundancies
- Hybrid
- Design era

- Connections
- Foundation
- Construction type/materials

- 14 Questions/statements pertaining to:
- All utility systems within the facility
- Telecommunications
- Power
- Gas
- Water (potable, wastewater, roof drain lines)
- Fire safety systems
- Computing systems
- Building controls
- Security systems

- All utility systems within the facility

- 13 Questions/statements pertaining to:
- Occupants
- Corridors, stairwells, exit routes
- Furniture
- Interior (non-structural) partition walls, flooring, doors, windows
- Specialized equipment
- Light fixtures
- Elevators

- Presents normalized risk index matrices
- First set presents normalized relative to facility
- As Inspected (AI) Matrix
- Mitigation Measures (MM) Matrix—calculates new risk index with updated inputs that assume suggested mitigation measures are implemented

- Second set presents normalized relative to campus
- AI Matrix
- MM Matrix

- Third set presents normalized relative to sample space
- AI Matrix
- MM Matrix

- First set presents normalized relative to facility

- Lists all 92 questions/statements with respective ratings in one place for ease of reference
- 4 page printout
- For review only; no modifications can/need to be made

- Identical layout to Sheet 8
- Modify ratings in this sheet to reflect the lower vulnerability based on suggested mitigation measures
- Anytime a rating is modified, an (*) appears to the right of the updated rating
- This input is used to produce the “MM” matrix

- Displays the raw output from the input ratings
- Contents of this sheet have minimal applicable use
- Summarizes the hazard information
- Presents an exposure and vulnerability matrix
- Presents a raw risk index matrix
- Range 0-1 where 0 is lowest risk; 1 is highest risk

- All of which is used to produce normalized risk index matrices

- Error message at the bottom of sheet is only item needed from this sheet
- Error count tallies the number of times a rating outside range limits is input in sheets 1-5

- Identical in layout and function to Sheet 10
- Uses data from Sheet 9 (Updated EV Inputs) to produce a risk index matrix reflecting lower risk (assuming mitigation measures are implemented)
- This data is used to produce the “MM” set of matrices

- Error message at the bottom of sheet is only item needed from this sheet
- Error count tallies the number of times a rating outside range limits is input in Sheet 9

- Cell F54 controls campus normalization
- Set this cell equal to the maximum value within the cell range B43:S47
- Can be done with a master spreadsheet that links to other facilities on campus

- Set this cell equal to the maximum value within the cell range B43:S47
- Cell F55 controls sample space normalization
- Set this cell equal to the maximum value within the sample space of raw risk index matrices
- If the sample space is the campus, use the same value that was used in F54

- Set this cell equal to the maximum value within the sample space of raw risk index matrices

- Output can be combined with UFIS results
- Composite of objective importance and risk scores

- Output can be combined with any measure of facility value/importance
- Facilitates a better understanding of the results
- Incorporates a loss measure
- Combines risk and importance into one result

- Facilitates a better understanding of the results
- Must use raw risk scores
- Raw risk scores present the most accurate result
- Normalized risk scores do not have enough resolution to provide clear delineation of results

- Facility “A” has a raw risk score of 0.020
- Insured value of $4.8 million
- UFIS score of 0.680

- Facility “B” has a raw risk score of 0.045
- Insured value of $3.5 million
- UFIS score of 0.580

- Which facility should take priority in receiving mitigation measures?

- Facility “A”
- 0.020 x $4.8 million = $0.096 million(Insured value)
- 0.020 x 0.680 = .0136(UFIS results)

- Facility “B”
- 0.045 x $3.5 million = $0.158 million(Insured value)
- 0.045 x 0.580 = 0.0261 (UFIS results)

- Facility “B” takes priority for mitigation measures based on composite score
