Description
Proceedings of GeoRisk 2011: Geotechnical Risk Assessment and Management, held in Atlanta, Georgia, June 26-28, 2011. Sponsored by the Geo-Institute of ASCE.

This Geotechnical Special Publication contains 127 peer-reviewed papers that address uncertainties in the geologic environment, covering new and continuing work on geohazard mitigation, uncertainty modeling, and risk assessment and management.

Topics include:

  • characterization and modeling of variability of soils across scales;
  • earth structures/slopes;
  • earthquake engineering and soil dynamics;
  • engineering geology and site characterization;
  • geotechnical assessment, characterization, and design for risk management;
  • hazards/risks;
  • limit state design in geotechnical engineering;
  • load and resistance factor design (LRFD) for foundation systems;
  • probabilistic/simulation methods;
  • quantitative risk analysis for embankments, dams, and slopes;
  • retaining structures;
  • risk and reliability in geoenvironmental engineering;
  • uncertainty analysis; and
  • uncertainty modeling.

This collection offers researchers and practitioners in all fields of geotechnical engineering essential information on identifying and managing risks.
