See how ASCE’s team probed resilience in Mexico City after the earthquakes
With an eye toward mitigating future disasters, a team of engineers organized by ASCE’s Infrastructure Resilience Division recently explored earthquake damage and recovery in and around Mexico City. The team gathered information that will help develop more resilient infrastructure. See the team’s posts at ASCE News and on Twitter at #quaketeamASCE.
Engineers at recent ICSI issue a video call-to-action on sustainability and resilience
“There is just one planet, Planet A. We don’t have Planet B,” said Rosa Galvez, Ph.D., of Quebec, a Canadian senator and McGill University civil and environmental engineering professor. She’s among the experts who shared ideas at ASCE’s recent International Conference on Sustainable Infrastructure, and united for a video urging engineers to apply sustainable practices now. View and share its message.
