ASCE Future Weather & Climate Extreme Series Three: Coastal Adaptation

The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) announces the Future Weather & Climate Extreme Series — the third series of virtual events continue to explore the 2021 ASCE publication “Impacts of Future Weather and Climate Extremes on United States Infrastructure: Assessing and Prioritizing Adaptation Actions.” Prepared by the Task Committee on Future Weather and Climate Extremes of the Committee on Adaptation to a Changing Climate of the ASCE, the publication was authored by Mari R. Tye and Jason P. Giovannettone, with contributions by Amir AghaKouchak, R. Edward Beighley, and many other subject matter experts. The three sessions of the upcoming series feature: Coastal Adaptation & Resilience in Virginia; Climate Change Adaptation for New York City Structures and Infrastructures; and, Climate Change Adaptation for Canadian Core Public Structures and Infrastructures. For more information, “Impacts of Future Weather and Climate Extremes on United States Infrastructure: Assessing and Prioritizing Adaptation Actions” is available for digital download in the ASCE Library.

Future Weather & Climate Extreme Series: Session 2 Design

Future Weather & Climate Extreme Series: Session 2 Design

American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Technical Activities group presents the Future Weather & Climate Extreme Series — the second series of events explore the 2021 ASCE publication, The Impacts of Future Weather and Climate Extremes on United States’ Infrastructure: Assessing and Prioritizing Adaptation Actions.

The important publication and the complementary series address the vulnerability of United States’ infrastructure to current weather and climate extremes, and the fragility of systems in the face of climate change. Series 2 offers three sessions focusing on analysis, design, and social and economic considerations.

Future Weather & Climate Extreme Series 2 continues on January 13, 2022 with Design, Operation and Maintenance of Infrastructure in the Face of Climate Change (“Design”), lead by Auroop Ganguly, Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Northeastern University; Julia Hopkins, Assistant Professor at Northeastern University; and, Ibbi Almufti, Advanced Technology and Research at Arup.

Summary: Critical societal functions such as drinking water, sanitation, uninterrupted power supply, reliable communications, and transportation will be tested in the near future by evolving weather and hydrological extremes combined with aging, interconnected infrastructure. Adapting to these uncertain extremes must balance elemental capability, such as novel developments that build upon fragility curves and performance-based engineering, with system functionality, such as network science and engineering principles that prioritize incentive structures for robustness of interconnected systems. Here, avenues for adaptation and resilience are presented through the lens of the design, operation, and evaluation of nature-inspired solutions, which range from safe-to-fail strategies, grey-green systems, sensor-based flexible design, to room-for-the-river, urban forests, and coastal habitat restoration. This presentation by a team of three researchers, practitioners and startup co-founders will discuss how emerging, state-of-the-art, and traditional design and operational principles may be harnessed and blended where appropriate for risk-informed action and to develop guidelines for civil and environmental engineers of the 21st-century and beyond.
