Description: This course will present concepts of resilience assessment and engineering in the context of civil structures and infrastructure systems, while acknowledging their role in supporting broader community resilience goals. We will explore the theoretical constructs, frameworks and formulations for evaluating resilience in the face of multiple hazards. Along the way, we review the key ingredients of such an evaluation ranging from hazard modeling and exposure to structural fragility and infrastructure performance assessment to restoration and recovery modeling. Topics will introduce students to relevant and timely resources such as opensource modeling environments and cyberinfrastructure to support resilience quantification, while leveraging case studies and projects to provide realistic context. Course content will be delivered via formal lectures, readings and discussion sessions, invited speakers, and working sessions.
