ASCE, the American Society of Civil Engineers published Climate-Resilient Infrastructure: Adaptive Design and Risk Management, MOP 140, prepared by the Committee on Adaptation to a Changing Climate of ASCE and edited by Bilal M. Ayyub, Ph.D., P.E.

Traditionally, engineers design civil infrastructure for appropriate functionality, durability, and safety for climate and weather extremes across the total asset lifecycle. However, new extremes of climate and weather present new challenges.

MOP 140 provides “…guidance for and contributes to the developing or enhancing of methods for infrastructure analysis and design.” Changing risk profiles demand a new design philosophy to confront new challenges of climate and weather extremes.

The manual of practice (MOP) describes probabilistic methods for quantitative risk analysis. Further, the design framework focuses on “identifying and analyzing low-regret, adaptive strategies” to make infrastructure projects more resilient.
