May 4- Developing Sustainable Urban Infrastructure to Solve Gigaton Problems
The most severe problems challengine humanity are those that can often be measured in the gigaton (billion tons) scale. A simulation-based decision support tool and strategies has been developed, allowing stakeholders to design and choose infrastructure solutions that consume fewer resources and generate less waste. In this talk from 6 p.m.- 7 p.m. in Nedderman Hall 100, Dr. John Crittenden, director of the Brooks Byers Institute of Sustainable Systems at Georgia Tech, will present case studies from Atlanta and Phoenix to illustrate the ability of this tool to support the decision-making in constructing more sustainable cities.
The ninth in a series of Distinguished Lectures hosted by the College of Engineering. Everyone welcome.
A reception for Dr. Crittenden will begin at 5:00 in 601 Nedderman Hall. Reservations, please, to www.uta.edu/engineering/rsvp.
