Urban Flood Resilience: Advancing Safe-to-Fail Infrastructure – Ingenious Talks

0



As communities face increasing risks associated with climate and extreme weather-related events, the ability to deploy infrastructure to protect people and maintain services is becoming a major challenge in climate adaptation. In this talk, Prof. Yeowon Kim will discuss increasing risks associated with climate and extreme weather-related events and present ways to develop “safe-to-fail” infrastructure that depart from the current practices and manages failure consequences when flood risks overwhelm existing infrastructure systems.

Presented by the Faculty of Engineering and Design, Carleton’s Ingenious Talks lecture series engages the community in discussions of timely and innovative ideas in engineering, design and technology.
