Abstract:This paper provides an update on the on-going research and development to develop new methods and tools to support asset management. The new approaches aim to support the attribution of risk to particular assets within the flood system and quantify how this may change over time and how alternative whole life strategies of capital and maintenance interventions can be best directed to manage the changing risk. The research includes development of a revised methodology for asset inspection and ongoing studies into how the probability of defence failures can be modelled and represented in a scientifically robust way.
