By the end of the course, you should be able to:
Practising civil and structural engineers who are keen to achieve resilience and robustness in structural design beyond the application of prescriptive codes of practice. It will also be of interest to those from other construction disciplines who wish to obtain a basic introduction to performance-based structural engineering and the concept and practical application of resilience in design practice.
Caroline Field MSc, CEng MICE is an Associate Director in the Resilience, Security and Risk team at Arup and is the Energy Sector lead for the Resilience Shift. She is active in developing standards in resilience. Caroline recently received the Royal Academy of Engineers Visiting Professorship Award and is supporting Loughborough University’s Civil Engineering Department as a Visiting Professor of Structure and Infrastructure Resilience.
Dr Alessandro Palmeri leads the Structures and Materials Group at Loughborough University. His research focuses on applications of structural dynamics, including bridge, earthquake and wind engineering, and probabilistic methods, including reliability and performance-based design.
