N2 - This paper performs a quantitative impact assessment of<br/>the climate change on typhoon wind risk, focusing on<br/>residential buildings in Japan. The risk is assessed based on<br/>(1) the typhoon event set extracted from the simulation by<br/>the super-high resolution atmospheric general circulation<br/>model developed within the KAKUSHIN program; (2) the<br/>probabilistic typhoon modeling scheme developed by our<br/>group; (3) a fragility model empirically estimated on the<br/>basis of the damage report of typhoon Songda in 2004 and<br/>the reproduced wind field by a mesoscale meteorological<br/>model; JMA-NHM. The main results are that in the future<br/>(2075–2099) at most locations of Japan: (1) extreme wind<br/>events (10-minute sustained wind speed exceeding 30 m/s)<br/>are more likely to occur; (2) the median of the annual<br/>maximum wind speed decreases; (3) the expected number<br/>of damaged residential buildings decreases, assuming that<br/>the profile of the building portfolio remains unchanged.<br/>Based on these results, the assumptions and inputs to the<br/>assessment are critically reviewed. Thereby, the needs of<br/>further research efforts toward more credible and<br/>comprehensive assessment are addressed.
