Water-related disasters most perceived by the public are those caused by large-scale riverine floods. There is evidence, however, that the most deadly events, which are driven by extreme precipitation, are those that are difficult to predict, such as debris ...

<p>This paper describes the systematic and holistic approach to geo-risk reduction that has been developed and applied to numerous deep water oil and gas projects and is now being used for shallow water wind farm developments.</p>

<p>The paper presents matters related to risks in geotechnical works and structures in two Romanian technical regulations: Code NP 074-2007 regarding geotechnical documentations for constructions and Code NP 120-06 on the design and construction requirements ...

<p>Last year in the Netherlands a 5-years development programme, called Geo-Impuls, started with the ambitious goal to half the occurrence of geotechnical failure in our civil engineering projects by 2015. This paper describes the sense of urgency to start ...

Swiss-wide, standardized information on natural hazards that threaten national roads (highways) are not available. The Swiss federal roads office (FEDRO) therefore decided to initiate a four year project, aiming at quantifying and mapping all risks due to ...

<p>Construction of tunnels is connected with high uncertainty in the field of costs, construction period, safety and impact on surroundings. Risk management became therefore a common part of tunnel projects, especially after a set of fatal collapses occurred ...

<p>The occurrence of hazard events in geotechnical practice is often associated with geotechnical uncertainties. To prevent hazard events from happening or reduce the impacts of their consequence, sources of geotechnical uncertainties need to be identified ...

The travel angles of landslides are important parameter in risk analyses. Here we examine the first use of the concept in Canada, applied to the Frank slide. We also report on travel angles of an additional 61 long runout landslides in the Canadian Cordillera, ...

<p>Risk assessment provides an opportunity to manage dam safety using a framework of risk evaluation that is used for other types of hazardous facilities and technologies. This paper contains a presentation of risk evaluation from a broad perspective but with ...
