Risk management theory was applied to the restoration plan of a failure slope induced by the Fukuoka earthquake in 2005. The potential slope failure is simulated using the discontinuous deformation analysis (DDA); and the risk of the slope disaster is evaluated for the potential failure slope of the three pointed-out cases based on the DDA results. Countermeasures for an appropriate failure scale in the restoration plan are proposed based on the risk analysis and risk pair convenience analysis.
