Resilience and What it Means to the Structural Engineer

Description

Resilience is a buzzword that is being erroneously applied to buildings. The public understands recovery from natural hazards is dependent on robust infrastructure, but structural engineers don’t often recognize how the resilience discussion relates to what we’ve done every day for decades. Attendees will learn how a practitioner can contribute value to the resilience discussion, using tools already available. Much of what is needed from built structure is required in modern building codes, including consideration of each hazard at any location in the country.
