The objective of this task group is to highlight criticalities in current structural design practice and to provide fundamentals to address the design, the maintenance and the retrofit principles towards resilient structures in sustainable urban systems, and more broadly, in view of smart cities.
TG7.6 aims to develop guidelines to help diverse stakeholders involved within such processes to face resilience issues through a multi scale approach
These guidelines will approach resilience issues according to a multiscale approach, starting from the single building scale. Structural design principles are rethought from the point of view of the practicality, reparability, robustness and serviceability in the aftermath of a catastrophe. Particularly, performance goals are recognised to define new resilience-based limit states, in order to enhance disaster preparedness and response of urban structures. Innovative and novel standards and metrics are implemented within the guidelines, as a support to the development of post-event strategic intervention, protection and response technologies and recovery strategies..
