The Fukushima disaster in 2011 exposed plant structures and piping to unprecedented levels of seismic activity, providing many lessons for the future. In response, engineers have been updating seismic design requirements and brownfield structural integrity evaluations utilizing new techniques to protect and extend the life of current structures and piping systems.
Learn how engineers updating these requirements are using integrated structural and piping models to ensure a safer design against more stringent seismic criteria. Discover how to use new tools such as laser scanning to quickly evaluate aging plant assets, assess plant integrity, and identify optimal operation and maintenance investments to extend the plant life cycle.

Reality modeling is the process of acquiring and managing digital information taken from your physical assets, whether through laser point cloud scanning and capture, digital images, aerial photos or video. You can then utilize this information to design, analyze or run 3D clash detection in-context with your 3D models to support your as-built layout and design workflows or capture as-built or as-operated conditions of your physical assets.
This webcast will focus on Bentley’s Acute3D technology for creating 3D models for use in transportation projects and how Reality Modeling can be integrated into your existing workflows using Bentley’s OpenRoads technology for InRoads and GEOPAK.

The fitness of our infrastructure can no longer be measured in how well it can take the punch of an earthquake, rather in how quickly it can recover after the fight. You don’t need to look much further than Haiti 2010, Christchurch 2011, and more recently Nepal 2015 to see the socioeconomic impact of ignoring resiliency. As in Christchurch, even though the codes and construction performed as expected to achieve life safety goals, it was not enough to achieve resiliency.
Join us to learn how your role as an engineer is changing in seismic disaster preparedness. Through the U.S. Resiliency Council’s approach, engineers can now actively help to inform and educate owners, tenants, lenders and governments of their buildings expected resiliency to seismic events. Modeled after the U.S. Green Buildings Council’s LEED® rating system, the USRC helps communities understand the vulnerability of our built environment through education, certification of engineers and credible evaluation of expected building performance.
