The main topics of the publication “Natural and technogenic risks. Building Safety” cover a wide range of problems related to the problems of sustainable spatial development of territories, which are directly related to issues of assessment and management of natural and technological risks, urban planning, construction, innovation, information, expert and analytical activities, as well as digital modeling and providing integrated urban planning (fire, industrial, seismic, environmental, energy) safety. In this regard, the pages of the publication are available to a very wide range of representatives of the scientific and professional community.


As you know, in the vast majority of cases, important scientific concepts are born and formed in serious discussions on the pages of such journals as “Natural and technogenic risks. Building Safety” Based on these positions, special attention is given in the publication “Natural and technogenic risks. Building Safety” is devoted to controversial issues on the general problems of regulation and standardization, engineering survey, engineering design and research activities. There is no doubt that some of the sharply debated contemporary problems or more particular issues of this direction in the coming years will be more reasoned and transformed into relevant fruitful concepts or research areas. To contribute to the similar formation of new knowledge is the indisputable task of our scientific journal.


The work of the editors of the publication “Natural and technogenic risks. Building Safety” with the authors is carried out in accordance with the rules and customs of business circulation adopted in leading peer-reviewed journals, it is characterized by the speed of interaction provided by the capabilities and electronic nature of the publication. Authors of published articles, as well as readers, have the opportunity to "online" to get information about the number of specialists who have read the full text of any published article. The contents of the publication highlighted a special column for registering readers' appeals to specific articles.


According to the recommendations of the Higher Attestation Commission (HAC) under the Russian Ministry of Education and Science, the publication “Natural and technogenic risks. Building Safety” was prepared for the passage of the established procedure and the inclusion of the magazine in:

Conventional linear spectral method versus the «dangerous direction of seismic excitation» concept: comparison using the simple sample problem
Key words: linear spectral structural seismic analysis; dangerous seismic excitation direction; multi-component seismic excitation
In SP14.13330 they use the «dangerous excitation direction» concept, looking for a certain direction of the one-component excitation vector in space, providing maximal modal response for each mode. In the international practice they use another approach, considering three-component excitation for each mode. «One-component onemode» responses are combined twice: first for different modes within each excitation component, then between different excitation components. It was shown that the results of both approaches will be similar, only if all three excitation components have similar response spectra; and all modes have frequencies apart from each other. In this paper the sample axisymmetrical system with double natural frequencies is studied: the «dangerous excitation direction» approach leads to the erroneous result

Dependence of movement of the elements of buildings on ground thickness under seismic conditions
Key words: displacements, layer thickness, loads, seismic conditions, SCUD software package, construction
An analysis of changes movements of structures located in the zone of seismic impact, depending on changes in the thickness of the layer of particular soil, is presented. An 18-storey building was used as the calculation model. The calculation was performed in the SCAD software package. The graphical and mathematical dependences of changes movement of the building on the thickness of soil base layer are determined. The authors believe that the obtained results can be used in designing of high-rise structures.

Comment of the editorial board to the article Kolosov E. S., Kolosova N. B. Dependence of the movement of building elements on the power of the soil in the conditions of seismic impact
Key words: seismic impact, ground power, static loading, ground foundation, movement of building elements
The authors have done a lot of work to assess the influence of the base layering on the movement of a high structure. However, the use of these results has a number of limitations, which are discussed in the article.

Assessment of medium-term and long-term risks for the population and territories of the North-West and Central Caucasus from natural hazards
Key words: earthquake, risk assessment, individual seismic risk
The article deals with the monitoring of individual seismic risk as a criterion value necessary for assessing the degree of risk in case of threats of catastrophic earthquakes at different stages of its manifestation to support decision-making.

Some features of decision-making in risk conditions
Key words: decision making, damage, risk, distribution function, damage probability, pandemic, insurance, earthquakes
The general problem of decision-making under conditions of risk caused by rare unfavorable natural or man-made eventы is considered. An event is specified by the probability of its occurrence or its recurrence and the distribution density function of damages caused by the event, provided that it happened. The problem of limiting the risk probability for a group of objects is considered. The influence of the riskiness of the decision maker on the risk value is shown. Two tasks are considered: the risk of gathering people during a pandemic and the risk of insuring a group of building projects against an earthquake.

Studies of the calculated values of the weight of the snow cover and the values of the altitude coefficient on the slopes of Mount Elbrus
Key words: weight of snow cover, maximum water content, designed facility, snow load, observation series, meteorological station, snow accumulation, calculated dependence, coefficient of determination
The results of determining the normative value of the weight of the snow cover and its change with height for the projected objects of the VTRK «Elbrus» at altitudes from 2000 m to 3840,6 m are presented. The series of the annual maximums of the water reserve in the snow cover, obtained as a result of snow route observations on the territory of the VTRK «Elbrus», based on the data of snow accumulation monitoring, a regression linear model of the dependence of the water content in the snow cover on the height above sea level was built. The main calculation method for finding the coefficients of a linear equation is the least squares method. The calculated values of the weight of the snow cover per 1 m2 of the land surface of various supply have been obtained. Its value at an altitude of 3500 m above sea level is 10,42 kPa at 2 % availability and 11,16 kPa at 1 % availability
