  • Title
    • Risk Assessments of Complex Infrastructure Systems – From real-world to computational models and beyond
  • Abstract
    • Our modern life becomes more and more dependent on the intricate web of critical infrastructure systems. Infrastructure systems provide the functional necessities, such as transportation, energy and telecommunication, but they also make cities more livable, increase the quality of life and support productivity and prosperity. However, infrastructure systems often encounter global and regional challenges such as rapid urbanisation, climate change and limited resources, as well as the fact that many assets are coming to the end of their lifespan. To solve these challenges, advances in simulation, modelling and data analysis techniques combined with High-Performance Computing offer potential new opportunities to design and optimise sustainable, resilient and smart infrastructures.
    • This presentation aims to give an overview how complex infrastructure systems are currently modelled; how we can utilise novel network analytic methods for spatial-temporal networks to gain a better understanding of our complex urban environment; how advances in data analytics and machine learning provide us new ways to extract knowledge and support decision-making processes; as well as how cloud-based simulations might offer a solution for computational risk and resilience assessments of complex infrastructure systems.
