Sponsored by the Social Science, Policy, Economics, Education, and Decision (SPEED) Committee of the Infrastructure Resilience Division (IRD) of ASCE, Resilient and Sustainable Buildings, IRP 7 provides a high-level overview of the methods and outcomes of four significant projects funded by the National Science Foundation. Further, the projects focus on “resilient and sustainable buildings,” or RSB. The broad spectrum of projects range from a single building to a complete community. Some of the many topics featured in Resilient and Sustainable Buildings, IRP 7 include:

  • “A comprehensive overview of the four multiyear research efforts;
  • Commonalities between the projects in approaches and methods and research gaps;
  • Differences between the projects in methods as a function of scale and hazard;
  • Multi-resilient and sustainable soil foundation structural envelope (SFSE) building systems and;
  • Decision frameworks for selecting among alternative building system designs.”

IRP 7 interests a wide array of stakeholders, such as civil engineers, urban planners, architects, and laboratory researchers, to learn more about the direction of research for resilient and sustainable building projects. Resilient and Sustainable Buildings, IRP 7 is sponsored by the Social Science, Policy, Economics, Education, and Decision Committee and edited by John W. van de Lindt, Ph.D.; Mehrdad Sasani, Ph.D.; Gordon Warn, Ph.D.; and, Mohsen Zaker Esteghamati, Ph.D.

About the Social Science, Policy, Economics, Education, and Decision (SPEED) Committee: “Purpose: To address social science, policy, economics, education, and decision-making aspects of resilience as related to civil infrastructure and lifeline systems to support overall community resilience. Bring together leaders in these disciplines to develop truly resilient communities.

About the Infrastructure Resilience Division (IRD) of ASCE: “The Infrastructure Resilience Division develops resources for improving the resilience of civil infrastructure and lifeline systems to all hazards. The Infrastructure Resilience Division was established in 2014 to develop a unified approach to advancing the concepts of resilience within lifeline and infrastructure systems.”
