DETAILS
Across the nation, communities are taking action to build their resilience to extreme events. As communities look to achieve more efficient and effective disaster risk reduction, opportunities exist for design professionals to help them advance their efforts using innovative and forward-looking technologies. For example, new structural materials and systems are emerging that are smart, connected, adaptive, sustainable and that will perform in a predictable manner. The question is how to best connect these advancements with community resilience objectives, outcomes, and goals. This workshop brings together representatives from the public, private, and academic sectors to explore the role that advanced technologies and design innovation can play in structural engineering and construction to promote more resilient communities as they prepare for the next hazard event and how to quickly recover afterwards.

This workshop will:
  • Explore the role of advanced technologies and structural performance data in existing infrastructure and built systems to enhance resilience and promote faster recovery;
  • Discuss the future role of advanced technologies and design practice in promoting community resilience --what does a resilient city’s built infrastructure look like in the future? and,
  • Identify research gaps or opportunities in development and use of advance technologies and design for building resilient infrastructure.
This workshop will bring together researchers, experts, practitioners, and noted leaders to explore the role of innovative technologies and smart infrastructure in building more resilient and sustainable communities; including:
  • How can advanced technologies and structural performance data in structural engineering support the design of infrastructure and built systems that enhance resilience and promote faster recovery?
  • What are today’s most promising innovations in technology and how are communities benefiting?
  • What is the future role of advanced technologies and design practice-- what does a resilient city’s built infrastructure look like in the future?
  • What are the research gaps or opportunities in development and use of advance technologies and design for building resilient infrastructure?
We hope you will join us for this exciting event!
