The objectives of the Task Committee are to enhance the
development and implementation of innovative and new 1)
structural and non-structural materials; 2) enabling
technologies such as structural health monitoring and
multi-hazard performance based engineering; 3)
evaluation, analysis, design, construction, and
maintenance methods through cooperative individual and
organized and networked analytical and experimental
approaches for the next-generation building and
infrastructure systems. Opportunities during the next
five years include topics on multi-hazard resilient
buildings, embedded systems for the health and
productivity of occupants, and collaborations with other
researchers and practitioners.
