Cost: Free for EERI Members, $50 for non-EERI Members

Speaker: John W. van de Lindt
Colorado State University


You’ll hear from John W. van de Lindt, Ph.D., on a timely and important topic — moving from performance-based engineering to multi-disciplinary community resilience, in which engineering merges with social, economic, and information science. You’ll also gain an understanding of how the concepts and practice of multi-disciplinary community resilience are developing.

The webinar will use 15 years of whole building shake table tests of resilient and non-resilient wood-frame apartment buildings to enter this discussion from an earthquake engineering perspective. Resilient buildings and physical infrastructure support social and economic institutions within a community and are necessary to achieve urban resilience to earthquakes and other natural hazards. Interdependencies in these systems play a key role and act within networks, across networks, and across disciplines making modeling a complex endeavor.

Van de Lindt will explore these interactions in a fundamental form for earthquakes, tornadoes, and floods. He will also cover how these complex systems are modeled, which metrics are tracked to identify stability and improvements in resilience, and close with a longitudinal field study being used to help validate these complex models.
