Following the practices long used in industries such as the oil and gas, chemical process, energy, and commercial aerospace sectors, CTLGroup engineers many times will approach the inspection of a building or a major civil infrastructure structure utilizing a risk-based approach. In other words, they will utilize hazard assessment techniques and risk-based inspection methods based on the knowledge of the risk of a failure.
This approach combines the likelihood (probability) of failure due to possible deterioration or damage with an assessment of the possible consequences of such a failure.
For more information on this risk-based method, click here to a paper co-authored by Dennis McCann, PE, Ph.D. for the ASCE Structures Congress 2015.
