Primary Instructor:

This class is to prepare students with the systems-level approach to the analysis and design of civil infrastructure systems. The fundamental concepts associated with the course are taught through a series of examples drawn from the various aspects of civil infrastructure systems applications. The examples build upon each other to provide a comprehensive overview of practical approaches to goal-oriented problem formulation and solution while giving the student a fundamental understanding of principles that can be used to facilitate decision making. Optimization techniques that will be discussed in this class include linear programming formulations and solution algorithms, multi-objective optimization, integer optimization, network models, and nonlinear programming.

Note: Business Water Risk: Ripple Effects from Watersheds to the Capital Markets This 7-week course presents an overview of how water has impacted risks to businesses and their supply chains, and how corporate financial managers and institutional investors are starting to incorporate risks in their accounting and asset allocations. Corporate water risk exposure is a function of three variables: 1) company/sector-specific characteristics (e.g. water intensity of production), 2) the water conditions in particular geographies (e.g. drought-prone or strictly regulated), and 3) the strength of corporate management (e.g. proactive vs. reactive) in mitigating risks. The challenge is how the information from the physical world is translated in the financial world, and vice versa. It is often perceived that the proper risk management strategy for water in a corporate context is technology-based (new supply, recycling, monitoring, etc.). The course will describe how capital commitments for technology and infrastructure are often a last resort, because they are expensive, long-term, and often their cost cannot be passed on to the consumer. Short-term, financial risk management is preferred, such as hedging and insurance strategies. This course will explore corporate water risk and financial response strategies, and discuss commercial tools available to sustainability, corporate and financial managers. This include corporate water footprinting, regional asset risk mapping (Aqueduct), corporate operational risk assessment (Water Risk Monetizer), and financial asset risk signaling (WaterBeta).

Note: Greenhouse Gas Control This course presents a review of strategies for the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in power generation, transportation, and the built environment. Sources, discharges, and physical properties of GHGs are surveyed, and technologies for GHG elimination or sequestration are discussed. Policy options for GHG control are considered.

Note: Decentralized Water Supply, Hygiene, and Sanitation This course provides an introduction to decentralized approaches to water access and treatment that results in providing access to drinking water and sanitation. The class will cover the risks associated with poor water quality (waterborne pathogens and chemicals); appropriate physical, chemical, and biological process technologies for decentralized deployment; social factors; and consideration for resource recovery, sustainability, public policies and environmental justice, and economic models including privatization.

Note: Structural Fire Engineering This course provides an overview of methods for the design and analysis of structures under fire hazards. Topics include: fire models for structural applications, conduction heat transfer analysis, response of materials at elevated temperatures, local and global structural responses, prescriptive and performance-based design approaches. The course will rely on finite element analysis; it must therefore be accompanied or preceded by CEE 510 (or equivalent).
