Le GeM accueille Yue Li (http://engineering.case.edu/profiles/yxl1566) en tant que professeur invité pendant juin 2017. Il est professeur associé à Case Western Reserve University aux USA et dans le cadre de sa venue il propose de partager ses activités de recherche lors d’une présentation intitulée
"Multiple-hazard Risk Assessment and Mitigation for Infrastructure”.
Le séminaire aura lieu le jeudi 22/06 de 11h-12h dans la salle U4 (Bâtiment 2) de la Faculté des Sciences et techniques de l'Université de Nantes.
Although in many parts of the country one natural hazard dominates, in certain areas multiple hazards may pose a significant threat to infrastructure. The design and construction practices should address the overall risk to infrastructure from multiple hazards to achieve design strategies and risk levels that are consistent with stakeholder expectations and social objectives. When exposed to hurricanes, earthquakes, flood, and other natural hazards, infrastructure may sustain substantial damage. To mitigate risk from natural hazards cost effectively, decision- making tools must be based on a better understanding of infrastructural performance with different levels of hazard-resistant design practices. The focus of this presentation is to demonstrate multiple-hazard risk analysis and mitigation for resilient and sustainable infrastructure.
Numerous studies warn that the built environment will be affected by climate change through rising sea levels and altered patterns of natural hazards. This presentation also discusses the assessment of economic damage due to the change in natural hazard patterns resulting from climate change. Several possible adaptation strategies to such an effect are investigated to achieve a sustainable built environment.
Dr. Yue Li earned his Ph.D. degree in Civil Engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology in 2005. Dr. Li’s research interests include resilient civil infrastructure and sustainability, natural and man-made hazard mitigation, Retrofitting deteriorating buildings and infrastructure systems, and timber engineering. He is an Associate Editor of the ASCE Journal of Structural Engineering, ASCE Journal of Performance of Constructed Facilities, and Journal of Sustainable and Resilient infrastructure. He also takes leadership roles at several ASCE SEI committees including chairing the Multi-hazard committee. He has authored and coauthored more than 150 publications. He received Fulbright Award in 2013, Outstanding Paper Award of the ASCE Journal of Performance of Constructed Facilities in 2012, and Michigan Technological University Research Excellence Fund Award in 2008. He has worked as a structural engineer for five years, and was involved in the design of new international terminal at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
