Safe and secure - risk based techniques for dam safety
07 December, 2006
In December 2006, part one of our article on the issues associated with the use of risk based techniques for assessing the safety of dams reported on the potential for dam failures based on past evidence and causes, and assessed the records for dam safety legislation and the classifications the structures are given by countries worldwide. Part two looks at how risk assessment has evolved, studies the public’s attitudes towards dam safety, looks in detail at the concept of risk assessment as applied to dam safety and current practice in its applications, and touches on the issue of dam security
