Urban Resiliency

urban resiliency

Purpose

Enhance understanding of the physical and cyber risks, challenges, and opportunities of the integrated framework of population, energy, water, transportation, and policy to improve reliability and resiliency of infrastructure services under changing and extreme climate conditions.

  •   Design and develop improve analytical methods and tools that will enable improve monitoring and modeling of infrastructures for performance reliability and situational awareness.
  •   Develop novel data, computational models, and visualization of large interconnected infrastructure networks to assess interdependency and cascading consequences of disruptive events.
  •   Identify and develop approaches to evaluate the physical and cyber risks and opportunities in connected city infrastructures to enable effective resource utilization and efficient operations in urban areas.
  •   Develop data, modeling, and simulation capabilities for comparative evaluation of land use planning and urban design scenarios to enable environmentally sensible and socially adaptable infrastructure investment choices.
