(Risk, Reliability) vs. (Resilience, Sustainability)

A recent in-print in the Journal of Infrastructure Systems, ASCE, is entitled “Resilience and sustainability of the civil infrastructure: towards a unified approach” by two Lehigh professors (P. Bocchini and D. M. Frangopol) and two German researchers (T. Ummenhofer and his student T. Zinke).  The paper, in my opinion, made a major contribution to the research community of RILCIE.  I strongly recommend you to read this paper.

It is interesting that the duality between resilience and sustainability is very similar to that between risk and reliability.  I didn’t see they pointed out this.
