OBJECTIVES OF IF CRASC’15

The main aim of the 2015 edition of IF CRASC Congress is
to promote the exchange of knowledge and experience
among academics, professionals, public administration
managers, private company employees, jurists, and judges in the civil, industrial and information technology fields of
Forensic Engineering.

Special interest will be given to:

- Situations affected by human activities, also in terms of
fault and malicious actions in design, construction,
management and control of civil facilities, industrial
processes, and both computer and electronic networks.

- Extreme actions (e.g., fires, explosions, impacts) and
their complex effects (e.g., progressive collapse
phenomena, cascade disasters, catastrophic events).

- Holistic design criteria for systems, structures and
infrastructures: resilience, dependability, robustness,
sustainability.

The Congress sessions will also cover emerging issues
highlighted in the last years in Italy and abroad.
The Congress will include general keynotes, invited
lectures, oral presentations and a round-table session
focused on major legal, technical and scientific issues in
Forensic Engineering. Different teams of experts will help to
produce guidelines on specific topics.

    • ORIGIN OF THE IF CRASC CONGRESS The IF CRASC congress series originated from the institution of a second level Master programme (post- graduate programme) on Forensic Engineering at the University of Naples Federico II, Italy. Such a Master programme was the first one in Europe and includes subjects of both Civil and Industrial Forensic Engineering. Beside the traditional sector of Structural Forensic Engineering (mainly focused on failures and collapses), in the last years, academics, professionals and public institutions have shown a growing interest not only in legal issues of engineering practice (e.g., procedures and responsibilities), but also in forensic fields of Industrial Engineering and Information Technology. This led to an extension of the topics covered by past Congresses on Collapses, Reliability and Retrofit of Structures to additional sectors of Forensic Engineering. The outstanding success of the past IF CRASC Congresses, as well as of other initiatives promoted in Italy and abroad on similar subjects since 2009, has allowed the Italian Association of Forensic Engineering (AIF) to organise the IF CRASC '15 Congress in Rome. OBJECTIVES OF IF CRASC’15 The main aim of the 2015 edition of IF CRASC Congress is to promote the exchange of knowledge and experience among academics, professionals, public administration managers, private company employees, jurists, and judges in the civil, industrial and information technology fields of Forensic Engineering. Special interest will be given to: - Situations affected by human activities, also in terms of fault and malicious actions in design, construction, management and control of civil facilities, industrial processes, and both computer and electronic networks. - Extreme actions (e.g., fires, explosions, impacts) and their complex effects (e.g., progressive collapse phenomena, cascade disasters, catastrophic events). - Holistic design criteria for systems, structures and infrastructures: resilience, dependability, robustness, sustainability. The Congress sessions will also cover emerging issues highlighted in the last years in Italy and abroad. The Congress will include general keynotes, invited lectures, oral presentations and a round-table session focused on major legal, technical and scientific issues in Forensic Engineering. Different teams of experts will help to produce guidelines on specific topics.
