ASCE Infrastructure Resilience Division Releases Resilient and Sustainable Buildings

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.

ASCE Infrastructure Resilience Division on Resilient and Sustainable Buildings

Sponsored by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Social Science, Policy, Economics, Education, and Decision (SPEED) Committee of the Infrastructure Resilience Division of ASCE, Resilient and Sustainable Buildings, IRP 7 provides a high-level overview of the methods and outcomes of four major projects funded by the National Science Foundation that focus on different aspects of resilient and sustainable buildings (RSB), ranging from a single building to a full community. IRP 7 is of interest to engineers, planners, architects, and researchers, in order to learn about the direction of research for RSB projects. Five key topics of Resilient and Sustainable Buildings, IRP 7 include:

  1. A comprehensive overview of the four multi-year research efforts;
  2. Commonalities between the projects in approaches and methods and in research gaps;
  3. Differences between the projects in methods as a function of scale and hazard;
  4. Multi-resilient and sustainable soil foundation structural envelope (SFSE) building systems, and;
  5. Decision frameworks for selecting among alternative building system designs.

Extreme Temperature and Intense Rainfall Inform Civil Engineering Design

Non-stationarity in future weather and climate extremes present critical challenges

The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) present the on-demand technical session “Leveraging Earth System Science and Modeling to Inform Civil Engineering Design (Part I): Extreme Temperature and Intense Rainfall (AWI031623),” instructed by Dan Walker, Ph.D., A.M. ASCE, Mari Tye, Ph.D., C.Eng., MASCE, MICE, and Joseph Barsugli, Ph.D. Further, recommended attendees include geotechnical, structural and water resource engineers, project managers, design engineers, and research engineers.

The technical session addresses how non-stationarity in future weather and climate extremes, on timescales greater than 20 to 30 years, present critical challenges for civil engineering design, operations and maintenance (O&M). Accordingly, as a part of the emerging partnership between ASCE and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the two organizations formed the ASCE NOAA Task Force on Climate Resilience in Engineering Practice (Task Force).

The online session is the first in a series of three sessions exploring how civil engineers can leverage NOAA data, to address various climate-related hazards during the design phase of infrastructure projects. Also, the technical webinar offers an overview of how the Task Force is shaping the new ASCE NOAA Partnership (as described in the recently signed memorandum of understanding between ASCE and NOAA), and how ASCE members can help the development of joint actions.
