Abstract

The purpose of this special issue is to present reviews of the latest research thinking about the risk, reliability and vulnerability of civil engineering structures. Some researchers argue that structural risk is a mature discipline. The personal view of the guest editor (and not necessarily of the guest contributors to this issue) is that, while it has made strong advances, much more development is required before it can smoothly be incorporated into practice. On the human scale, I estimate that it is about 16 years old: strong and growing up fast but still lacking maturity. All of the papers are aimed at nurturing that important development which will eventually ease the topic into mainstream practice. In that respect all of the papers are intended to be of interest to practitioners.
