The Role of Advanced Technologies in Structural Engineering for More Resilient Communities

September 26, 2017
Beckman Center
Irvine, CA


Purpose: This workshop will bring together researchers, experts, practitioners, and noted leaders to explore the role of innovative technologies and smart infrastructure in building more resilient and sustainable communities; including:

  • How can advanced technologies and structural performance data in structural engineering support the design of infrastructure and built systems that enhance resilience and promote faster recovery?
  • What are today’s most promising innovations in technology and how are communities benefiting?
  • What is the future role of advanced technologies and design practice—what does a resilient city’s built infrastructure look like in the future?

    What are the research gaps or opportunities in development and use of advance technologies and design for building resilient infrastructure?

In an effort to develop relationships and promote dialogue and community exchange, the National Academies’ Resilient America Roundtable—in partnership with the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), Structural Engineering Institute (SEI), and the Advances in Information Technology Committee—co-hosted a one-day workshop on September 26, 2017. The event brought together experts, practitioners, and researchers from the public, private, and academic sectors to: 1) enhance resilience and promote faster recovery by exploring the role of advanced technologies and structural performance data in existing infrastructure and built systems; 2) discuss the future role of advanced technologies and design practice in promoting community resilience; and 3) identify research gaps or opportunities in development and use of advanced technologies and design for building resilient infrastructure. This publication summarizes the presentations and discussions from the workshop.
