Title: NEESR-GC: Seismic Risk Mitigation for Port Systems (NEES-2005-0086)
Year Of Curation: 2012
Description: Earthquakes pose a significant threat to many U.S. seaports, which serve as crucial gateways for international trade. Current engineering practice for seismic risk reduction for port facilities is typically based on design or retrofit criteria for individual physical components (e.g., wharf structures) expressed in terms of allowable levels of force and/or displacement. However, the viability of a port following an earthquake depends not only on the performance of these individual components, but on their locations, redundancy, and physical and operational connectivity as well, that is, on the port system as a whole. This project integrates engineering, logistics, risk analysis, and decision sciences and uses the performance of the port system as the basis for seismic risk mitigation decisions. This holistic approach allows limited resources to be used more wisely.
