Extreme Events and Systems: How Interdependency Leads to Cascading Impacts and Systems Failure
Session Date: Tuesday, September 14, 2021
[Registration closes September 11 @ 5pm ET]
Time: 2:00 – 3:00pm ET
Where: Right here on ASCE Collaborate!!
This second session focuses on the ways in which these sectors of energy, transportation, drinking and wastewater, water storage and flood protection, and navigation are increasingly interdependent and how, in design, maintenance and operation, we must consider these interdependencies in assessing vulnerability and risk. The session includes visualizations and examples of how impacts to one system can cause significant impacts in others, potentially leading to large-scale failures in unanticipated ways, along with simple tools for integrating more resilient approaches into engineering work.
