1 Report on an OpenSpace Technology Workshop on the Future of Earthquake Engineering

2 Earthquake Engineering Vision 2020 Planning Committee Shirley J. Dyke, Purdue University Bozidar Stojadinovic, UC Berkeley Pedro Arduino, University of Washington Maria Garlock, Princeton University Nicolas Luco, U.S.G.S. Julio A. Ramirez, Purdue University, NEEScomm Solomon Yim, Oregon State University

3 Earthquake Engineering Vision 2020 Acknowledgment National Science Foundation Dr. Joy Pauschke, Project Manager NEEScomm, NEES Network Wei Song, doctoral candidate, Purdue University Pat Sangahan, meeting facilitator

4 Earthquake Engineering Vision 2020 Purpose Vision 2020 was established to formulate a vision of where earthquake engineering in the US needs to be in 2020 to vigorously address the grand challenge of mitigating earthquake and tsunami risk. principal new directions in research, practice, education reflect on the role of the NEES network

5 Earthquake Engineering Vision 2020 Theme Participants unanimously identified resilient and sustainable communities as the overarching theme to guide future efforts Involves physical systems (e.g. buildings, highways, sanitation, subways, communications, energy facilities) human systems (e.g. local population and its associations such as schools, banking and insurance systems; socioeconomic and legal frameworks that guide decisions)

6 Earthquake Engineering Vision 2020 Our goal is to ensure a more resilient Nation - one in which individuals, communities, and our economy can adapt to changing conditions as well as withstand and rapidly recover from disruption due to emergencies. -- President Barack Obama National Preparedness Month, A Proclamation By The President of the United States of America, September 4, 2009

7 Earthquake Engineering Vision 2020 Principal Directions Metrics to quantify resilience Hazard prediction and risk communication Existing structures and infrastructure New materials, components and systems Monitoring and assessment of resilience Simulation of systems Technology transfer

8 Earthquake Engineering Vision 2020 Metrics to Quantify Resilience Definition for resilient communities within the context of the engineering profession Need expectation of performance levels before, during and after earthquakes Structures (new and existing) Lifelines and occupants Lifecycle considerations Multi-hazard

9 Earthquake Engineering Vision 2020 Hazard Prediction & Risk Communication New technologies will enable enhanced situational awareness in real-time Assess structural integrity Communication for search and rescue Comprehensive evaluation of an event Fundamental requirements are smart, ubiquitous sensors, system level models for prediction, data collection and processing systems

10 Earthquake Engineering Vision 2020 Renewal and Existing Structures Existing vulnerable physical assets Uncertain inventory / condition High costs of mitigation strategies Limited existing decision support tools Need experimental and computational tools to assess the hazard, manage the inventory, and evaluate the condition Courtesy of Quakewrap

11 Earthquake Engineering Vision 2020 New Materials, Elements and Structures Resilient structures enabled by Auto-adaptive materials New, modular construction techniques Physics-based modeling of materials Quantification of advantages Deployment requires re-design of the components and the systems, and experimental verification Courtesy of BigFish L Chico et al. Phys Rev Lett 76, 971 (1996) Courtesy of Hong-Nan Li

12 Earthquake Engineering Vision 2020 Monitoring and Assessment Instrumenting the built and natural environments Integrating real-time data Event detection Post-event response planning Model validation Diagnosis and prognosis Human response Reduce, ingest and aggregate vast amounts of data

13 Earthquake Engineering Vision 2020 Simulation of Systems Central to improving resiliency Future work should consider Multi-scale models and multi-physics models Hybrid experiments involving both physical and social infrastructures Consider not only components, but systems and interacting elements

14 Earthquake Engineering Vision 2020 Technology Transfer Measurable impact will be achieved by transfer of this knowledge to practice of engineering, building codes public policy, decision making and behavior hazards other than earthquakes public-at-large Research to advance technology transfer – education, communication, social media, etc.

15 Earthquake Engineering Vision 2020 Role of NEES Simulation Physical Computational Hybrid Cyberinfrastructure Data Collaboration Education

16 Earthquake Engineering Vision 2020 Role of NEES Improved data collection and information management capabilities Cyberinfrastructure resources to support the data structures and visualization methods State-of-art capabilities to support innovative testing, data preservation, and collaboration

17 Earthquake Engineering Vision 2020 Role of NEES Enhanced capabilities for simulation of complex systems Access to national high-performance computing resources Developments to integrate social, physical and numerical components

18 Earthquake Engineering Vision 2020 Role of NEES Techniques for use of new materials and elements Real-time structural assessment and data assimilation methods New types of large-scale field testing equipment

19 Earthquake Engineering Vision 2020 Role of NEES World-class facilities to enable training of the next generation of researchers and practitioners

20 Earthquake Engineering Vision 2020 Conclusion Achieving the 2020 Vision will require a revolutionary change in the processes deployed to generate fundamental knowledge and develop enabling technologies Earthquake engineering disciplines will need to work together to accelerate progress The NEES Collaboratory will play a key role

21 Earthquake Engineering Vision 2020 Thank You!
