      The webinar introduces basic definitions and applications of Risk Assessment to Geotechnical Engineering. The main objective of the webinar is to provide a sound overview of the principles, methods and implications of framing Geotechnical Engineering practice within a Quantitative Risk Assessment. As demonstrated in the book, RFEM performs better in real-world applications than traditional risk assessment tools that do not properly account for the spatial variability of geomaterials. This text is divided into two parts: Part One, Theory, explains the theory underlying risk assessment methods in geotechnical engineering.

    Qualitative Geotechnical Risk Analysis 25 If any other person deals with issues directly relevant to geotechnical design and construction (such as utility relocation or in some cases structures), that person should be invited to the risk assessment workshop also. Communication of risks within a transparent and accountable framework is essential in view of increasing mobility and the complexity of the modern society and the field of geotechnical engineering does not form an exception. As a result, modern risk assessment and management are required in all aspe.

Norway ABSTRACT Paper No. SOA-5 Statistics. reliability analyses and risk estimates can he very useful decision-making tools in geotechnical problems. Yet the methods are little used in by: 6. Risk Assessment in Geotechnical Engineering by Gordon A. Fenton. Risk Assessment in Geotechnical Engineering introduces an innovative reliability-based method for risk assessment in geotechnical engineering that allows engineers to create a better model for analyzing the properties and possible failure of a slope, mine shaft, foundation, embankment, or surface soil.

There are many situations in geotechnical engineering where design codes are not sufficient and in these cases the designer may choose between a deterministic ‘worst credible’ approach, or a risk-based approach to solve the problem.
