O Departamento de Engenharia de Estruturas da Escola de Engenharia de São Carlos (EESC) da USP sedia, nos dias 17 e 18 de outubro, o evento Sustainability of the Built Environment, com participação do professor Michael Havbro Faber, do Department of the Built Environment - Aalborg University (Denmark).
 
Serão duas palestras e um workshop, com o objetivo de divulgar, no Brasil e no Estado de São Paulo, iniciativas para a Sustentabilidade do Ambiente Construído.
 
O evento acontecerá de forma híbrida (confira abaixo a programação), com participação presencial no auditório do Departamento ou remotamente nesta sala virtual.
 
Na oportunidade, Faber fará a divulgação da iniciativa não-governamental GLOBE Consensus, que visa direcionar a atenção da comunidade global, dos políticos, dos líderes industriais e dos tomadores de decisão sobre a importância crítica do ambiente construído para o desenvolvimento sustentável, em escala local e global. Ações são  urgentemente necessárias para assegurar que o ambiente construído do futuro seja resiliente, adequadamente seguro, e social, ambientalmente e economicamente sustentável.
 
Michael Havbro Faber é Professor of Risk Informed Decision Making for Structures (Department of the Built Environment Aalborg University, Denmark), President of the Joint Committee on the GLOBE Consensus, Member of the Independent Research Fond, Denmark, Advisor for Risk and Reliability Research at the DTU Oil and Gas Centre, Former President of the Joint Committee on Structural Safety and Member of the Danish Academy of Technical Sciences (ATV).
 
O evento, que tem apoio da Fapesp, é uma iniciativa do Instituto Brasileiro do Concreto (IBRACON), da Associação Brasileira de Pontes e Estruturas (ABPE) e da Associação Brasileira de Engenharia e Consultoria Estrutural (ABECE). 
 
 
 
Programação das atividades:

Dia 17  |  Segunda-feira  |  14 horas
On the modeling of risk, resilience and sustainability
In this presentation the focus will be directed on the probabilistic representations of systems. Based is taken in the presentation and discussion of a framework developed by the Joint Committee on Structural Safety, aiming to support decision making in the context of development and integrity management of structures and infrastructure systems. It is shown how, based on this framework, systems risks may be modelled from a perspective focusing on scenarios of events leading to direct and indirect consequences, and also how this modeling perspective facilitates that the robustness of systems may be quantified. Finally, extending on the scenario based perspective the concepts of resilience and sustainability are introduced in a manner that  facilitates not only the modeling of events of resilience failure and sustainability failure, but also facilitates answering the important question – how resilient is resilient enough?

On Tradeoffs between Sustainability, Safety and Economy in Infrastructure Development
Sustainability is now appreciated to comprise on of the leading objectives in the development and integrity management of the built environment. In the past the leading objective has been adequate safety and economic efficiency – and the basis for developments of past and present safety formats for codified design of structures is based on this. The big question now is how safety formats for the next generation design codes should be established such as to ensure adequate levels of sustainability. To answer this question necessitates a deeper understanding of the tradeoffs between safety, economy and sustainability. In this presentation recent and yet unpublished results on these tradeoffs in the context of design and integrity management of roadway infrastructure systems are presented and their possible implications on future best practices discussed.
