Communication of risks within a transparent and accountable framework is essential in view of increasing mobility and the complexity of the modern society and the field of geotechnical engineering does not form an exception. As a result, modern risk assessment and management are required in all aspects of geotechnical issues, such as planning, design, construction of geotechnical structures, mitigation of geo-hazards, management of large construction projects, maintenance of structures and life-cycle cost evaluation. This volume discusses: 1. Evaluation and control of uncertainties through investigation, design and construction of geotechnical structures; 2. Performance-based specifications, reliability based design and limit state design of geotechnical structures, and design code developments; 3. Risk assessment and management of geo-hazards, such as landslides, earthquakes, debris flow, etc.; 4. Risk management issues concerning large geotechnical construction projects; 5. Repair and maintenance strategies of geotechnical structures. Intended for researchers and practitioners in geotechnical, geological, infrastructure and construction engineering.

"Soil Strength and Slope Stability is the essential text for the critical assessment of natural and man-made slopes. Extensive case studies throughout help illustrate the principles and techniques described, including a new examination of Hurricane Katrina failures, plus examples of soil and slope engineering from around the world. Extraneous theory has been excluded to place the focus squarely on the practical application of slope design and analysis techniques, including information about standards, regulations, formulas, and the use of software in analysis."--pub. desc.

Emergency operations centers (EOCs) are a key component of coordination efforts during incident planning as well as reaction to natural and human-made events. Managers and their staff coordinate incoming information from the field, and the public, to support pre-planned events and field operations as they occur. This book looks at the function and role of EOCs and their organizations. The highly anticipated second edition of Principles of Emergency Management and Emergency Operations Centers (EOC) provides an updated understanding of the coordination, operation of EOCs at local, regional, state, and federal operations. Contributions from leading experts provide contemporary knowledge and best practice learned through lived experience. The chapters collectively act as a vital training guide, at both a theoretical and practical level, providing detailed guidance on handling each phase and type of emergency. Readers will emerge with a blueprint of how to create effective training and exercise programs, and thereby develop the skills required for successful emergency management. Along with thoroughly updated and expanded chapters from the first edition, this second edition contains new chapters on: The past and future of emergency management, detailing the evolution of emergency management at the federal level, and potential future paths. Communicating with the public and media, including establishing relations with, and navigating, the media, and the benefits this can provide if successfully managed. In-crisis communications. Leadership and decision-making during disaster events. Facilitating and managing interagency collaboration, including analysis of joint communications, and effective resource management and deployment when working with multiple agencies. Developing and deploying key skills of management, communication, mental resilience. Planning for terrorism and responding to complex coordinated terrorist attacks. Developing exercises and after-action reports (AARs) for emergency management.
