A contribution entitled "Built Environments Prone to Sudden and Slow Onset Disasters: From Taxonomy Towards Approaches for Pervasive Training of Users" has been accepted and presented at the ICCSA2021-21st Intern. Conf. on Computational Science and its Applications.
The contribution concerns the impact of assessment of innovative tools for increasing awareness and preparedness of end-users towards the resilience for the Built Environment (BE) exposed to SUdden Onset and SLow Onset Disasters (SUOD and SLOD). It traces rules and criteria for the representation of the Built Environment (BE), in its spatial, geometric and informative features, in order to be perceived by users. Different objectives and available economic, hardware/software and human resources are discussed since they can determine the selection of the methodological workflow and the software products chain. According to WP6 activities developed in the second year of the research, the work examines disruptive technologies for the creation of Digital Built Environments to highlight the potentialities of Virtual Reality in improving expert knowledge acquisition and awareness gathering. Particularly, the use of Digital Models, BIM and Virtual Tour based, supports analytical and parametric simulations and pervasive training, respectively. This last objective can be perceived through smart and inclusive Digital solutions, mostly shared via web applications, to reach a wider audience.
The contribution has been also published in "Computational Science and Its Applications – ICCSA 2021. ICCSA 2021. Lecture Notes in Computer Science", Vol 12956. (ISBN: 978-3-030-87009-6), editors: Gervasi O. et al. , publisher: Springer, Cham, and is available here.
