QuakeCoRE 2021 – 2028 Research Programme – Interdisciplinary Programme 1: Functional Recovery with Repairable Multi-storey Buildings

10 am Friday 10th June

Programme Co-Leader: Geoff Rodgers (University of Canterbury) &
Programme Co-Leader: Alice Chang-Richards (University of Auckland)


Inter-Disciplinary Programme 1 will promote functional recovery and develop solutions to maintain and restore building function following a large earthquake. Factors such as economic, societal, and sustainability drivers for more resilient buildings will be investigated and linked to low-damage design concepts and risk-targeted design for functionality.

The research will also investigate technical requirements to restore function and associated expectations and timeframes for repair in a post-earthquake environment.

This programme will investigate drivers for uptake of increased post-earthquake functionality and the wide-ranging motivation for, and consequences of, improved functional recovery. Specific technical, economic, and societal challenges to develop evidence-based guidance on functional recovery will be identified.

Overall, this programme will support and promote increased societal resilience through greater uptake of low-damage building designs and guidance on the repair of buildings that suffer damage during a large earthquake.
