Infrastructure Risk Assessment & Management contains selected papers presented at both the 10th International Conference on Computer Simulation in Risk Analysis and Hazard Mitigation and the 14th International Conference on Structures under Shock and Impact, organized by the Wessex Institute.
The papers cover a variety of topics, including impact and blast loading, response of buildings and other structures to blast and their dynamic behaviour. These are all areas of active research and general interest, focused on the survivability of physical facilities and the protection of people. It contains a series of research contributions, essential to deepen the knowledge of how structures and materials behave under a wide variety of dynamic load actions.
Current events emphasise the importance of the analysis and management of risk to planners, civil authorities, law enforcement agencies, non-governmental organisations, information technology experts and many other researchers and practitioners throughout the world.
This volume brings together the work of researchers and other professionals actively involved in finding new ways to cope with the increased demands for a more effective control of impact and blast effects as well as risk management and control.
