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.
