Significance of Sustainable and Resilient Infrastructure Systems    LIVE WEBINAR ONLY

Time: 7:00pm to 9:00pm    2 Professional Development Credits

Most of our existing infrastructure (Including transportation) system are not sustainable and resilient. It is important to understand the significance of sustainable and resilient critical infrastructure systems. Sustainable and resilient critical infrastructure systems is an emerging thought in an evolving era of depleting natural and mad made assets to provide a sustainable and high quality of life with optimized resources from social, economic, societal and environmental considerations. Sustainable infrastructure refers to the designing, building, and operating of these structural elements in ways that do not diminish the social, economic and ecological processes required to maintain human equity, diversity, and the functionality of natural systems. Infrastructure resilience is the ability to reduce the magnitude and/or duration of disruptive events. The effectiveness of a resilient infrastructure or enterprise depends upon its ability to anticipate, absorb, adapt to, and/or rapidly recover from a potentially disruptive event. Sustainable infrastructure enhances quality of life for citizens, increases positive impacts (benefits), helps protect our vital natural resources and environment. The development of infrastructure systems that are sustainable and resilient involves a broad range of performance indicators over the system life-cycle that affect system functionality and recovery. Sustainability indicators address economic, social, and environmental performance metrics and resilient indicators address strength, functionality, and recovery-time metrics following a hazard event. Considering above facts, it is high recommended to transform our existing infrastructure systems to be sustainable and resilient. Also, our newly developed critical infrastructure systems should be sustainable and resilient.

Learning Objective(s) :The major learning objectives are


Q.What is the main problems related to our present sustainable and resilient infrastructure systems?
A. Most of our existing infrastructure (Including transportation) systems are not sustainable and resilient.

Q. What is a Sustainable and resilient critical infrastructure systems?
A. Sustainable and resilient critical infrastructure systems is an emerging paradigm in an evolving era of depleting assets in the midst of natural and man-made threats to provide a sustainable and high quality of life with optimized resources from social, economic, societal and environmental considerations.

Q. What does sustainable infrastructure mean?
A. Sustainable infrastructure refers to the designing, building, and operating of these structural elements in ways that do not diminish the social, economic and ecological processes required to maintain human equity, diversity, and the functionality of natural systems.

Q. Why is sustainable infrastructure important?
A. Sustainable infrastructure not only enables sound economic development, job creation and the purchase of local goods and services, it also enhances quality of life for citizens, increases positive impacts (benefits), helps protect our vital natural resources and environment.

Q. What is our goal related to sustainable and resilient infrastructure systems?
A. Considering above facts, it is high recommended to transform our existing infrastructure systems to be sustainable and resilient. Also, our newly developed critical infrastructure systems should be sustainable and resilient.

 4. Selection of appropriate structural analysis methods to avoid failures of structures with real life examples.
