Civil engineering is a tricky balancing act between relying on what has worked for infrastructure in the past and predicting what infrastructure will need decades into the future.
A new book prepared by the ASCE Task Committee on Future Weather and Climate Extremes, Impacts of Future Weather and Climate Extremes on United States Infrastructure: Assessing and Prioritizing Adaptation Actions, helps civil engineers thread that needle.
On episode 91 of ASCE Plot Points, co-authors Mari Tye, Ph.D., C.Eng, M.ASCE, and Jason Giovannettone, Ph.D., A.M.ASCE, talk about their new book and how it can help civil engineers make intelligent infrastructure decisions for the future.
