Sustainable and Resilient Engineering to Mitigate Climate Disasters

Engineering, mechanics, and materials to mitigate climate-related disasters

The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) presents the webinar Case Studies in Sustainable and Resilient Structural Engineering, Mechanics, and Materials (SR-SEMM). The course instructor is Fariborz M. Tehrani, Ph.D., PE, ENV SP, PMP, SAP, F.ASCE. Recommended attendees include structural engineers, geotechnical engineers, construction engineers, environmental engineers, architectural engineers, and other stakeholders interested in sustainability, resilience, materials, and infrastructure policy and planning. The benefits and learning outcomes of the webinar include to:

  • Identify and explain three principles of sustainability and resilience, and apply them to selected SR-SEMM solutions in civil engineering projects following ISI Envision Framework and UN SDGs.
  • Analyze five domains of sustainable and four domains of resilient performances for selected SR-SEMM solutions in complex civil engineering projects following ISI Envision and EMI ORC MOP.
  • Comprehend, analyze, develop, and assess PCR, EPD, and LCA documents for selected SR-SEMM practices across three Net Zero concepts following EPA’s Initiative and ASCE COS Standard.

Purpose and Background: “The field of sustainable and resilient structural engineering, mechanics, and materials (SR-SEMM) incorporates cross-disciplinary concerns with natural resources and objective approaches to mitigate climate-related disasters. This presentation introduces fundamental motivations, key concepts, and a brief review of selected applications of SR-SEMM, from lightweight materials to seismic isolation systems for sustainable and resilient infrastructure. Discussions include the technical, environmental, and societal performance of applications using standard practices and guidelines for assessing safety, sustainability, and resilience in various civil engineering domains such as buildings, roadways, embankments, and marine environments. Outcomes provide a roadmap for planning, management, design, and construction professionals to adopt SR-SEMM solutions in practice.”
