Fire, explosion, flood and pestilence: how to build a resilient world post-pandemic
|Starts:||14:00 24 Mar 2021|
|Ends:||15:00 24 Mar 2021|
|What is it:||Webinar|
|Organiser:||The University of Manchester at Harwell|
|Who is it for:||University staff, External researchers, Current University students|
|Speaker:||Professor Neil Bourne|
Professor Neil Bourne, MACE, is presenting the first talk, hosted by the Institute of Physics, in a series from experts within the field of high strain-rate / pressure phenomena. COVID-19 has presented the most challenging healthcare and societal challenge in living memory. The pandemic has coincided with extreme environmental change leading to wild-fires, flooding and marine extinctions. There have even been concurrent, man-made disasters such as the explosion that devastated Beirut. Yet we can now detect the critical seeds from which such catastrophes result. This webinar will discuss how to then reengineer resilient systems using digitally-designed, manufactured and maintained structures capable of surviving the most extreme environments. We shall discuss particularly how users can access new national platforms and exascale computing to drive design and engineer a secure and resilient world.
The talk will be available live online (https://global.gotomeeting.com/join/943556533) on Wednesday 24 March 2021, 14:00 (GMT).
