NRMCA, Build With Strength Discuss Functional Recovery as a Measure of Resilience

Print this Article | Send to Colleague

One of the biggest roadblocks to implementing enhanced resilience in the built environment is the lack of an accepted measurement system that would determine when resilience goals are being met. The concept of functional recovery is intended to address the gap by providing a way to evaluate resilience in an objective manner. In an article in Engineered Systems magazine, NRMCA Senior Vice President, Structures and Codes, Scott Campbell discusses the use of functional recovery in resilient design. The column is part of an ongoing series where Dr. Campbell lays out various aspects of security and resilience for a technical, but not specialist, audience and advances the concept of resilience as envisioned by NRMCA.

Build With Strength is a coalition led by NRMCA that promotes concrete building systems through communications, project promotion, education and advocacy. To learn more, contact Scott Campbell at or 502-552-5034.
