Link Workshop on Structural Safety and Infrastructure Management

We are hosting a workshop on structural safety and infrastructure management on Wednesday 24 May 2017 at our London office. Organised by TRUSS, this workshop will address challenges raised by London Infrastructure Plan 2050 - how to maintain buildings, energy and transport infrastructure that constitute the basic pillars for providing social and economic benefits to a growing London.

Key challenges in managing the increasing demand on London’s infrastructure

The natural consequences of an increasing demand in operational and environmental loads are rapid ageing and deterioration of infrastructure. This workshop reports on current needs of our infrastructure to remain effective and structurally safe, and how monitoring systems and reliability models can contribute to:

  • a more efficient infrastructure design, assessment, monitoring and management,
  • maintain current infrastructure stock in operation while minimizing risks,
  • reduce infrastructure costs and demand for non-renewable and carbon intensive resources while maintaining or improving safety levels.

Target audience

Policy makers, owners, operators, managers, research scientists, engineers and practitioners interested in life cycle maintenance, risk and probabilistic analysis of engineering structures/systems and structural health monitoring.
