Integrated Approach for Geotechnical and Hydrodynamic Analyses in Coastal Residential Built Infrastructure:  A Holistic Perspective

The continental US and US territories have a combined shoreline of 95,471 miles, and over 40 percent of the population lives near the coast. As is the case around the globe, the US coasts are facing increasing infrastructure threats from evolving climatic conditions and extreme meteorological events, particularly storm surges. These threats are especially evident in the communities living close to the coast, which are facing issues like forced reallocation and economic decline due to hazards like sea level rise and erosion. This webinar aims to show a holistic framework for analyzing the stability of built geotechnical infrastructure in the coastal corridor subjected to storm surge events. The use of a probabilistic approach to account for the inherent variabilities and uncertainties in the coastal environment shall also be discussed. Additionally, some preliminary ideas for mitigating these challenges shall be explored as a means for efficient decision-making for stakeholders in the face of storm surges and associated hazards.
