Risk perception in civil engineering application Micic, Tatyana


This paper uses both technical and intuitive risk formulations that are currently in use. Hybrid procedure for identification of risk perception for built infrastructure is used to establish format that can improve risk communication. In general for infrastructure the effect of uncertainty is defined through specific collapse models, physical variability, geometric variability, system behaviour, etc. Processing the outcomes of Portrait Value Questionnaires will provide the information about stakeholder values but also their perception of risk associated with the particular infrastructure. Therefore, there is an opportunity to complement the probabilistic analysis approach in civil engineering with distinct information about the perception of risk. For a sample structure and selected hazard differences in risk formulation are illustrated and options for risk communication highlighted. The cross-disciplinary approach offers a useful insight and could enhance options for risk communication.
