European Master and Certification Program
in Risk Engineering and Management


Course on Resilience of Infrastructures

Lecturers: Prof. Dr. Aleksandar S. Jovanovic (Steinbeis Advanced Risk Technologies GmbH)

Short description

 

Description 

Modern society depends more and more on the effective and reliable operations of infrastructure systems (infrastructures), such as those delivering energy, water, sanitation, shelter, information, emergency response and other critical services. These, on the other side, need to be assessed on their resilience in case of large and/or cascading events. Whilst most people fully agree about the importance of resilience, common agreement about the resilience assessment approaches, methods and tools is still an issue.

The course will look at these issues primary from the engineer point of view and, after preparing the overview and information about the state-of-the-art focus on some practical examples highlighting aspects of the practical quantitative assessment of resilience.

Objectives

 
Course Units 

  • Unit 1: State-of-the-art, basic principles, approaches
  • Unit 2: Theoretical background, methods & tools
  • Unit 3: Practical application: Industry
  • Unit 4: Practical application: civil structures
  • Unit 5: Discussion


Target Attendees
 

Engineers, managers at all levels, inspectors, legislators and other professionals dealing with risk, safety and resilience of infrastructures  as well as students, will profit from the course by

  • increasing their understanding of strengths and weaknesses of different approaches and
  • extending their knowledge on resilience approaches.
