Design method for mitigation structure
Two step design method is proposed
First Step
 For a boulder which occurs frequently, the design metod based on the allowable stress is suitable.
 Structures behave in the elastic range.

 Permanent deformation or damage must be little.
Second Step
 For a boulder  which occurs unusually, the ultimate strength must be verified.
 Maximum deformation must be restricted.

 Sudden failure must be avoided.

 Flexibility of members and deformability of material are required.
