Professor Božidar Stojadinović, Ph.D., Chair of Structural Dynamics and Earthquake Engineering at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) Zürich, presents a supply/demand approach to modeling the resilience of a civil infrastructure system that involves component vulnerability and recovery functions and a model of system operation.
In this presentation, Prof. Stojadinović evaluates the seismic resilience of the electrical power supply system in Nepal after the 2015 Gorkha earthquake. He presents two classes of resilience measures, examines how to evaluate them probabalistically, and offers options to develop resilience acceptance criteria. Finally, he discusses a process to design resilient civil infrastructure systems.
