Design and Reliability of Offshore Geo-Structures
Monday, August 21, 2017 8:00am-5:00pm
Risk management is an important skill needed throughout all aspects of geotechnical engineering. Most decisions need to be made without knowing for certain how the decision will play out, introducing risk and making it difficult to communicate those decisions to stakeholders such as owners, regulatory agencies and the public. This course will provide practical tools to make, analyze and communicate risk-based decisions. It will incorporate case histories and audience participation.
