El National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) ha lanzado una encuesta solicitando ideas para redactar una Guía de Diseño y Normas para la resiliencia de las Infraestructuras.
Extreme weather events such as hurricanes, droughts, heat waves, convective storms, floods, and wildfires have significant adverse impacts. Sea levels, temperatures, and precipitation patterns are expected to increase in frequency and severity and stress transportation systems, increasing the risk of disruptions, damage, and casualties. Infrastructure planning and design should account for these conditions to minimize impacts, yet this is not adequately addressed in current design standards and guidance.
