<p>The purpose of this paper is to establish a qualitative method to estimate the risk level (e.g. rating and ranking) resulting from mining activity. Risk is the product of two factors: probability of failure and cost of consequences. A resultant assessment ...

<p>One of the most challenging safety problems in room and pillar coal mines is roof fall phenomena during retreat mining. Roof fall not only causes fatal and non-fatal injuries on miners, stoppages in mining operations and equipment breakdowns, but ...

<p>In this paper data about actual infrastructure performance of two railway tracks in the mostly populated area of the Netherlands are correlated with regional<br />climate data in order to model future performance and apply appropriate interventions to cope ...

<p>A Dynamic Bayesian Network (DBN) model for probabilistic assessment of tunnel construction performance is introduced. It facilitates the quantification of uncertainties in the construction process and of the risk from extraordinary events that cause severe ...

<p>Estimates of uncertainties and risks of the construction process are<br />essential information for decision-making in infrastructure projects. The construction process is affected by different types of uncertainties. We can distinguish between the common ...

Unlike fragmental rockfall runout assessments, there are only few robust methods to quantify rock-massfailure susceptibilities at regional scale. A detailed slope angle analysis of recent Digital Elevation Models (DEM) canbe used to detect potential rockfall ...

<p>Geogrid reinforced soil structures are planned and constructed in increasing amounts due to their various benefits. Little amounts of failures or deformations beyond serviceability limit state are reported. Multiple factors can influence the behavior of ...

<p>Safety, reliability and risk analysis and management are the keywords in engineering these days. Yet while technical solutions are in many respects extended by safety margins of 30 to 70% commercial risks are limited to surcharges of the order of 1% forced ...
