Abstract

Mountain glaciers in China are an important water source for both China and adjoining countries, and therefore their adaptation to glacier change is crucial in relation to maintaining populations. This study aims to improve our understanding of glacial vulnerability to climate [...]

Abstract

In this work, a study about the vulnerability and seismic damage of unreinforced masonry buildings is carried out. Three models of buildings representatives of the Eixample district of Barcelona have been chosen. The seismic vulnerability is evaluated by means of the Risk-UE methodology. [...]

Abstract

A socio-economic data set on Chinas historical flood losses for the period 1984–2012 was compiled to analyze the exposed population, economy, and crop area as well as the vulnerabilities of the population and economy to floods. The results revealed that the exposed population was [...]

Abstract

In this paper, a new methodology is described to evaluate the effect of open air explosions on equivalent structures to the facades of buildings. The structural damage is defined by vulnerability surfaces that are a function of the explosion magnitude, the distance to the structure [...]

Abstract

In this work, the vulnerability of an unreinforced masonry building, evaluated on the one hand by using the incremental dynamic analysis, and on the other hand by using nine representative non-linear static incremental procedures, is compared. For comparison
reasons among [...]

Abstract

By using daily air temperature and precipitation data, and the weather phenomena data of daily snowfall from 98 meteorological stations over the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau (QTP), this paper performs an “at-risk” evaluation on snowfall and accumulated snow over the QTP under current [...]

Abstract

With the deepening of climate change research, more attention has been paid to vulnerability to climate change. Compared with water resources, forests and other natural ecosystems, agriculture is more vulnerable to climate change, thereby scientifically assessing agricultural vulnerability [...]

Abstract

To study the vulnerability of the natural gas pipeline infrastructure in a region of Argentina, the characterization of gas pipelines from the province of Córdoba is carried out in this work. For this purpose, parameters and value intervals that delimit the vulnerability [...]
