Abstract

Lifeline earthquake engineering is now well established as a component of the earthquake engineering and it used to plan for future impacts in the United States and other countries, such as New Zealand. Applied more broadly, many of these principles apply to civil infrastructure systems management. A joint US-NZ Workshop on Civil Infrastructure Systems Management in Multihazard environments was recently held to discuss this concept, with coastal engineering one of the represented components. Themes that emerged from the Workshop included the need to take a systems-level view of multiple hazards, the interdependencies among infrastructure systems, and the potential for integration of mitigation strategies to achieve multiple (and consistent) objectives. This paper deals with these concepts as they potentially apply to coastal hazards.
