Abstract: This datasheet presents a framework for the assessment of robustness that takes basis in risk based decision theory; it is based on mainly Baker et al. (2008). The direct risk, which is associated with the direct consequences arising from potential damages to components of a structural system and indirect risk, which corresponds to consequences resulting from loss of system functionality or failure are evaluated. The robustness of a system/structure is then assessed by the ratio of the direct risks to the total risks.
