CIVL 380 Deleted - Applied Sustainability and Public Health in Civil Engineering |


This course introduces concepts and tools to undertake the sustainable design of infrastructure systems. Emphasis is placed on the prevention of environmental and human health damage at the design stage of civil engineering systems. Key concepts of sustainability, natural capital, humanmade capital are defined. The rules of “weak” and “strong” sustainability are introduced. Life-cycle analysis, environmental input-output analysis, and quantitative risk assessment are introduced as systems-level approaches and applied to material selection and design decisions of civil engineering systems. Students will apply these techniques in a design project. - COURSE DELETED 2014-2015
