Abstract

Here are considered the risks both for people and for environment due to adverse effects of incidents that are caused from a release of flammable liquid transported by road trucks. A particular presentation is reserved to the damages to the soil and groundwater that can be potentially impacted, and is also traced a comparison with fatalities among population. A quantitative risk assessment methodology for soil volumes and groundwater areas impacted is proposed. Thus, as well as the construction of the cumulated frequency versus fatalities is the well known societal risk index (the F/N&t curve), the occurrence frequencies with the soil contaminated volumes or the groundwater impacted areas define two homologues environmental risk index, the F/N^
