SEAONC Summer Webinar on Functional Recovery & Resilience
The Summer Webinar on Functional Recovery and Resilience presented July 8th and 15th, 12-2 PM, focused on functional recovery in terms of resilience and the related implications for the practicing engineer. July 8th introduced broad concepts and framework tools that have been used on real projects that were shared during the July 15th webinar.
The Day 1 speakers included SP3 CEO and Co-Founder, Curt Haselton, and long-time SP3 team member, Dustin Cook (who is now a post-doc at NIST). Day 2 speakers included four engineers who are pioneering resilient design, and are leveraging both FEMA P-58 and SP3 to quantify resiliency in terms of reduced repair costs and faster building recovery times. Recordings for the two-part webinar can be requested through SEAONC.
Day 1: Overview (July 8th)
Resilient Design for Functional Recovery: Recent Progress and State of Practice
Presented by Curt Haselton, PhD, PE (SP3 | Haselton Baker Risk Group)
This presentation introduced a new FEMA P-58-based framework to probabilistically quantify building downtime and discussed how this method can be used to facilitate recovery-based building design. The discussion focused on this new framework and how it helps influence standards to encourage design as well as construction of high performance buildings that contribute to resilient communities.

Functional Recovery: A New Framework to Quantifying Recovery Time for Resilient Design
Presented by Dustin Cook, PhD, PE (NIST)
This presentation provided an overview, background and motivation that led to a recent paradigm shift towards designing buildings that sustain minimal damage in extreme events to enhance the ability for users to quickly recover function after an earthquake. The presentation discussed the adoption of functional recovery concepts in our structural engineering industry, existing FEMA P-58-based tools, proposed design strategies, and explained current research gaps for targeting functional recovery performance in our building stock.
