Building houses in inundation areas is always a risk, since absolute flood protection is impossible. Where settlements already exist, flood damage must be kept as small as possible. Suitable means are precautionary measures such as elevated building configuration or flood adapted use. However, data about the effects of such measures are rare, and(More)
The project “Risk Map Germany” of the Center for Disaster Management and Risk Reduction Technology (CEDIM) aims at the examination of existing and the development of new approaches for integrated risk assessment as well as the realisation of risk analyses for selected threats and regions. Hazard, vulnerability and risk maps display the results and provide(More)
In the aftermath of the severe flooding in Central Europe in August 2002, a number of changes in flood policies were launched in Germany and other European countries, aiming at improved risk management. The question arises as to whether these changes have already had an impact on the residents’ ability to cope with floods, and whether flood-affected private(More)

One important prerequisite for a comparable quantitative risk assessment for different types of hazards (e.g., earthquakes, windstorms and floods) is the use of a common database about and financial appraisal of the assets at risk. For damage assessments it is necessary to represent the values at risk on a regional disaggregated scale and to intersect them(More)
Defensive Publishing denotes publication of an invention with the purpose of creating prior art, and thus preventing patents being granted on this invention.

We find(More)

Ahead of an unavoidable collision, the actual crash constellation and along with it, the crash severity can significantly change based on the driver actions. To justify the use of safety measures like airbags, prior to an accident, the severity of the predicted crash must be high enough and the crash severity prediction itself must be reliable. In this(More)
