This course provides an overview of resilient design and discusses how resilient design is and is not covered by building codes and standards. The role of masonry construction in meeting resilient design goals is explained, and the inherent properties of masonry that make it resilient are described. Examples of resilient design strategies are provided.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define resilience.
  • Explain how resilient designs go beyond the minimum building code requirements.
  • List at least three above-code standards that can be used with resilient designs.
  • Describe inherent properties of masonry that provide resilience.
