Within the CRCI, there are three research thrusts, Structural Resilience, Infrastructure Resilience and Control Systems. By taking a multidisciplinary approach to research, the Centre seeks to draw in the capability from wherever the expertise exists. The resulting relationships have spanned from municipal governments to multinational corporations. With the Centre becoming an international thought leader on infrastructure resilience planning, the research continues with work on current and emergent issues of today and into the future across all three thrusts.
Structural Resilience Thrust
Building upon a unique structural resilience expertise within the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Toronto, the Structural Resilience Thrust was the first to be developed. Read more.
Infrastructure Resilience Thrust
The Infrastructure Resilience Thrust is truly multidisciplinary and seeks to advance the meaning of infrastructure resilience by understanding how it influences the operating environment and is influenced by the community in which it exists. Read more.
Control Systems Thrust
The Control Systems Thrust seeks to explore possibilities in how infrastructure and network systems can be controlled, the potential dangers or threats to the workings of the control systems and the resiliency of the system. Read more.
