MIT CSHub to hold Webinar on Solving Climate Change with Statistical Physics Tools
The MIT Concrete Sustainability Hub (CSHub) will hold a webinar titled Solving Climate Change and Social Inequities with Statistical Physics Tools on Thursday, October 28, at 1 p.m. Eastern time. The webinar explains how statistical physics tools can help predict and mitigate increasingly devastating natural hazards, such as floods, fires, hurricanes and earthquakes. The statistical physics approach developed at the CSHub is computationally efficient and broadly applicable. It can capture unanticipated wind load magnifications across regions, rapidly generate urban flood maps, and predict how structural and non-structural members contribute to the overall hazard resilience of structures. Crucially, it can also bridge these many scales to capture inequities in resilience across hazard-prone areas.
The webinar will be presented by CSHub Faculty Director Dr. Franz-Josef Ulm.
