Institution of Civil Engineers – Bridge Engineering
Recent natural disasters revealed the vulnerabilities of bridges and critical infrastructure to diverse hazards (e.g. floods, blasts, earthquakes), which may exacerbate due to climate change, leading to significant economic losses and societal disruption. This themed issue is focused on the methods, tools and metrics used in the quantification of bridges and critical transport infrastructure resilience.
Examples of relevant topics include, but are not limited to: – Collapse assessment – Retrofitting/strengthening – Robustness/redundancy – Risk analysis and resilience – Multihazard stressors infrastructuResilience – Network analysis – Restoration and reinstatement strategies – Network operability – Interdependencies – structural health monitoring and structural control – Numerical analysis and simulation – Resources and finance in restoration/resilience of transport infrastructure
