Seismic Resilience Assessment of Hospital Infrastructure Hardback

Part of the Resilience and Sustainability in Civil, Mechanical, Aerospace and Manufacturing Engineering Systems series


  • Information


Healthcare facilities or hospital systems are classified as some of the most critical infrastructure systems when responding to natural disasters.

Seismic Resilience Assessment of Hospital Infrastructure systematically presents a suite of novel techniques developed by the authors and their team for seismic resilience assessment of hospital infrastructure, with particular emphasis on seismic tests and fragility models of hospital equipment, resilience assessment of single hospital buildings and emergency departments, and post-earthquake functionality of urban hospital infrastructures. Features:Presents a state-of-the-art review on hospital resilienceDevelops seismic fragility model database for hospital equipment based on shaking table testsProvides a road map for effective and efficient methods necessary for assessing and improving seismic resilience of hospital systems and other critical engineering systemsExpertly summarizes outcomes of many important research projects sponsored by various research agencies, including the National Natural Science Foundation of China
