Ground gas information sheet No 9

ABSTRACT

In 2019, Card et al published ‘Risk and Reliability in Gas Protection Design – 20 years on’ which provided a screening approach to ground gas risk that can be applied when continuous monitoring data (including flow rates) is available.

This paper describes how to use the 2019 screening method as one line of evidence in a multiple lines of evidence approach. Importantly it explains the limitations and requirements for use of the method that are stated in the Ground Engineering paper.
