In Chapter 1, we discussed various features, benefits, and metrics of multihazard (MH) considerations in civil infrastructures. We also contended that the utilizations of such benefits have been fairly limited. The primary reason for this limitation is the lack of adequate processes (e.g., analysis and design modules), which can be reliably used to take advantage of many of the MH considerations. In order to establish such processes, we will take a closer look at the subject of MH starting from forming a theoretical basis. This will be our task in this chapter before we embark on more in-depth civil infrastructure applications in later chapters based on the theoretical basis developed in this chapter.
