Risk modelling to improve infrastructure resilience to typhoons

Day: Tuesday, May 25, 2021

Time: 14:00 - 19:30

Venue: Online Map

Slender structures such as tall buildings, long span bridges, masts and towers are increasingly important components in our transport and communication infra-structure. These slender structures are extremely sensitive to wind loading and are especially prone to large amplitude dynamic wind-structure interactions. This can lead to collapse during typhoon winds and the subsequent failure of communication and power distribution networks has serious consequences for disaster response and maintaining economic productivity.
Reliability methods provide an appropriate probabilistic framework for predicting these risks by combining mod-els of the typhoon hazard, the asset vulnerability and the consequences of failure. This framework enables targeted interventions to improve the resilience of the networks leading to better disaster preparedness and response.
The workshop will highlight the application of this framework to typhoon risks in Vietnam and provide del-egates with the opportunity to learn from invited international experts working on similar challenges across the world. This is an important activity of a long-term collaboration between the UK and Vietnam through the project “Improving the Resilience of Infrastructure in Storms (IRIS)” supported by the Royal Society and the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF).
