Part 1 of the 3-part series will present resilience through
the lens of a structural engineer, defining the role of the structural engineer
in the process and introducing the terminology and concepts being discussed
today by many technical committees. We
will explore our Codes and Standards framework, and the philosophy and
rationale beyond probabilities being used as the basis for performance
expectations. Part 1 will feature an
overview of three common design hazards (earthquake, tornado, wind), their
current design philosophy, challenges and shortfalls of this philosophy in a
resilience context, and ideas being discussed for upcoming Standards revisions.
