With rapid urbanization in developing countries and the emergence of smart systems and integrated intelligent devices, the new generation of infrastructure will be smarter and more efficient. However, due to natural and anthropomorphic hazards, as well as the adverse impact of climate change, civil infrastructure systems are increasingly vulnerable. Therefore, future-proofing and designing resilience into infrastructure is one of the biggest challenges facing the industry and governments in all developing and industrialized societies. This book provides a comprehensive overview of infrastructure resiliency, new developments in this emerging field and its scopes, including ecology and sustainability, and the challenges involved in building more resilient civil infrastructure systems. Moreover, it introduces a strategic roadmap for effective and efficient methods needed for modeling, designing, and assessing resiliency.
- Includes contributions from internationally recognized scholars in the emerging field of infrastructure resilience.
- Covers a broad range of topics in infrastructure resilience such as disaster assessment, civil infrastructure and lifeline systems, natural hazard mitigation, and seismic protection.
- Includes practical global case studies and leading-edge research from several countries.
- Presents an interdisciplinary approach in addressing the challenges in the emerging field of infrastructure resilience
Resilience of Critical Infrastructure Systems: Emerging Developments and Future Challenges serves as a valuable resource for practicing professionals, researchers, and advanced students seeking practical, forward-looking guidance.
