Lloyd’s Register will host a half-day Workshop on Structural Safety and Infrastructure Management on Wednesday 24 May 2017 in the Committee Room of 71 Fenchurch Street, EC3M 4HH, London, UK. A poster exhibition on the topic will be on display during coffee breaks.
Key challenges in managing today’s infrastructure
Buildings, energy and transport infrastructure are key elements for supporting and providing social and economic benefits to our society. The natural and unavoidable consequences of an increasing demand in operational and environmental loads are rapid ageing and deterioration of this infrastructure. For infrastructure to remain effective and structurally safe, a management strategy that guarantees adequate maintenance is needed. However, this is a complex task due to the limited resources that are available, and to the uncertainties associated to the structural capacity and demand on a structure.
Policy makers, owners, operators, managers, research scientists, engineers and practitioners.
