Risk Based GeoEngineering Design: Prediction, Assessment, and Mitigation

The consequence of geostructure failures are catastrophic and severely threaten the sustainability of our communities. The next stage of geotechnical engineering practice must incorporate risk factors into the designing process, as well as see the active retrofitting of at risk current geostructures. This Topical Collection of papers welcomes manuscripts dealing with the preservation and resilience of geostructures.
