Coping study on: Disaster Resilient Infrastructure
Worldwide the physical infrastructure is highly exposed to any disaster. To make infrastructure disaster resilient is challenge. This study paper prepared by IDNDR provides some insights for the protection of infrastructure from the disaster. At the outset it clarifies that man must be realized that 100% safety does not exist, especially not if structures are exposed consciously to natural hazard. They cannot be made safe against all possible impacts of natural hazards.
The various natural hazards have different character because they are governed by different physical processes. Accordingly, the methods of hazard intervention also differ. The paper attempts to demonstrate these differences and at the same time intends to show the possibilities of intervention. Three zones have been distinguished. For extreme natural hazards, structures are essentially not able to resist, while other can be dealt with by a correct design. For many natural hazards it is nearly impossible to intervene at the source
