The course will look at these issues primary from the engineer point of view and, after preparing the overview and information about the state-of-the-art focus on some practical examples highlighting aspects of the practical quantitative assessment of resilience.
Engineers, managers at all levels, inspectors, legislators and other professionals dealing with risk, safety and resilience of infrastructures as well as students, will profit from the course by:
