Risk Assessment in Geotechnical Engineering Webinar, 24 Feb 2012

Topic: Risk Assessment in Geotechnical Engineering

Host: Hanna Prichard

Date: Friday, February 24, 2012

Time: 9:00 am, Central Standard Time (Chicago, GMT-06:00/ 3pm GMT)

Session number: 953 065 012

This 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.

The proposed approach is based on common practice established within the technical committee TC-304 Engineering Practice of Risk Assessment & Management of the ISSMGE. The webinar includes the homogenization of technical terms of Risk, a discussion on a quantitative framework reference of Risk, the corresponding Risk estimation methods, and presents illustrative case studies of various degrees of complexity.
