Civil infrastructures serve as the critical lifeline to connect communities with essential services for public health, economic productivity, and the operation of daily life. Disruption of critical infrastructure can cause devastating social and economic consequences, particularly in catastrophic events such as earthquakes. With the increasing demand for improved infrastructure services in modern societies, establishing resilient infrastructure is a prerequisite for the long-term sustainable development of a post-disaster recovery framework.
Our mission at MAINS Lab is to develop computationally effective tools to measure resilience and predict the intricate performance of complex structures and infrastructure systems exposed to natural hazards. At MAINS Lab, we focus on applying machine learning techniques and probabilistic methods for the risk assessment of structures and infrastructure systems.
