Caroline Field (England) will present "Engineering for the Future – a Resilience-Based Approach" at the Institution of Structural Engineers Technical Lecture Series in London at 5:30 p.m. on June 29, 2017.
Caroline is a Principal at MMI Engineering, a division of Geosyntec. Her presentation discusses what strategies must be used to create a lasting future environment. One of the concerns of this future environment is modern buildings. Climate change alone will affect the loads that modern buildings will endure. Caroline will also discuss a different approach to resilience that takes into account that if our buildings hold a larger load than they are made for, their fate is unknown. Along with this, she will explain adaptive capacity and the need for engineering solutions to use this concept.
With more than 20 years of professional experience in the design and analysis of a wide range of structures for the built environment, Caroline specializes in the field of structural resilience to extreme events, specifically earthquakes, explosions and progressive collapses.
