Welcome to the Risk Assessment and Mitigation (RAM) Lab at Colorado State University
Please visit the new webpage for the RAM Lab
To address these challenges, the RAM Lab at Colorado State University is developing generalized simulation-based approaches that can facilitate efficient risk assessment and mitigation for infrastructure system. The research in the RAM Lab leverages the versatility of generalized simulation-based approaches and the efficiency of soft computing and high performance computing to address challenges associated with solving complex engineering systems. The ultimate goal of the research is to deliver a powerful, versatile framework for risk assessment/mitigation that is applicable for a variety of hazards, can accommodate models with high degree of complexity, and can also provide enhanced decision support even for real-time applications.
Research areas in the RAM Lab include:
- PhD student Zhenqiang Wang will be presenting his work on “Sample-based approach for identification of critical links in seismic risk assessment of large-scale transportation networks.” at the ASCE Engineering Mechanics Institute Conference, May 29-June 1, 2018, M.I.T., Cambridge, MA.
