Risk Assessment

This is a textbook of theories and methodologies for assessing risk. The first part of the book explains the theories underlying risk assessment in geotechnical engineering, including over 100 examples that put numerous methodologies to work. The second part uses probability and statistics to quantify these risks. The methods described in this book range from single-variable and "first order" methods to advanced methods with multiple, coupled variables. Particular emphasis is given to the random finite element method (RFEM).
