Geotechnical Risk and Safety V contains contributions presented at the 5th International Symposium on Geotechnical Safety and Risk (5th ISGSR, Rotterdam, 13-16 October 2015) which was organized under the auspices of the Geotechnical Safety Network (GEOSNet) and the following technical committees of the of the International Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSGME):
TC304 Engineering Practice of Risk Assessment & Management
TC205 Safety and Serviceability in Geotechnical Design
TC212 Deep Foundations
TC302 Forensic Geotechnical Engineering
Geotechnical Risk and Safety V covers seven themes:
Geotechnical Risk Management and Risk Communication
Variability in Ground Conditions and Site Investigation
Reliability and Risk Analysis of Geotechnical Structures
Limit-state design in Geotechnical Engineering
Assessment and Management of Natural Hazards
Contractual and Legal Issues of Foundation and (Under)Ground Works
Case Studies, Monitoring and Observational Method
The 5th ISGSR is the continuation of a series of symposiums and workshops on geotechnical risk and reliability, starting with LSD2000 (Melbourne, Australia), IWS2002 (Tokyo and Kamakura, Japan), LSD2003 (Cambridge, USA), Georisk2004 (Bangalore, India), Taipei2006 (Taipei, Taiwan), the 1st ISGSR (Shanghai, China, 2007), the 2nd ISGSR (Gifu, Japan, 2009), the 3rd ISGSR (Munich, Germany, 2011) and the 4th ISGSR (Hong Kong, 2013).
