Abstract:

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.
