Description

As part of an ongoing mission to disseminate information about acceptable risk processes, ASCE's Council on Disaster Risk Management convened a symposium in 2006 on the natural and technological hazards occurring in the central United States, specifically Missouri, Illinois, and Tennessee. The collected papers cover frequent natural hazards - including floods, heat, winter storms, thunderstorms, earthquakes, fires, hurricanes, landslides, and tornadoes - as well as frequent technological hazards - including hazardous materials, nuclear incidents, dam failures, and terrorism. Papers briefly identify governmental regulations and describe details of major natural and technological hazards. This monograph outlines some of the more important issues that should be addressed in the development of comprehensive national and state hazard plans and action scenarios. This publication is invaluable to engineers involved in disaster risk assessment and mitigation, lifelines, and owners and operators of public and private infrastructure systems.
