However, technology is an integral part of this concept. Traditional forms of traffic monitoring and [...]

  • IP0463 - The difficulties of risk assessments for complex network infrastructure: applications to the security and the resilience of road infrastructure.
    Saverio PALCHETTI

    Accidents, whether natural, accidental or harmful, are inevitable and, in some cases, unpredictable. Reducing vulnerabilities to cyber and physical attacks or accidents and developing resilience are key objectives in critical infrastructure protection. To such an aim, a series of consolidated approaches and methodologies have been developed, supported by international standards, guidelines and best [...]

  • IP0536 - Tunnel security, a complex approach for complex structures
    Philippe CHANARD

    Tunnels are covered structures designed to allow the underground passage of a road, railway or waterway. They can be short, medium or long (over 2500 m), one-way or two-way. They may be successive; they may be small gauge; they may be intermodal; they may serve car parks in urban areas; they may also have multiple underground entrances and exits. Modern tunnels are sophisticated, due to the presence [...]
