Risk Analysis in Impact Assessment

  • Martina ZeleňákováEmail author

While there are some studies in the literature considering risk analysis in construction projects, studies of risk analysis regarding water management constructions, especially assessment of flood protection structures (FPS), are very limited. In classical project risk-analysis techniques, risk-rating values are calculated by multiplying probability and impact values, but direct analysis of the linguistic factors involved is often neglected. This book introduces a new approach to risk assessment of activities in water management (FPS projects) using risk analysis.
