Sponsored by the Objective Resilience Committee of the Engineering Mechanics Institute of ASCE

Engineering is a balance between analysis and design. Mathematics and sciences form the basis for objectivity, or the analysis; whereas design is more subjective, drawing on art, intuition and imagination.

Reaching that balance between objectivity and subjectivity will lead to a better product. To help communities and asset resilience projects achieve a balanced treatment, the Objective Resilience Committee sought to provide a comprehensive basis of recommended practices that can help enhance the resilience of these projects, while emphasizing the objective side of such practices. The result is these four Manuals of Practice (MOP), edited by Mohammed M. Ettouney, Ph.D., P.E., which contain useful information for the average engineer in his or her everyday work.
