主持人：Giorgio Monti 教授
Network infrastructures safety is a major issue in structural engineering. Developed world countries strongly depend upon efficient behaviour of transportation, telecommunication, energy, hospitals and immaterial networks. The seminar frames the problem within the risk perspective, with special reference on seismic risk. Networks are catalogued, and real world applications concerning structural safety and retrofitting of such systems are given, showing the conceptual steps to quantify their reliability. Economic optimization is also introduced.
