  1. 1. Having a New Pair of Glassess Applying Systemic Accident Models on Road Safety

    University dissertation from Institutionen för datavetenskap

    Author : Yu-Hsing Huang; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; accident model; road safety; accident prevention; accident analysis; TECHNOLOGY Information technology Computer science Cognitive science; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Informationsteknik Datavetenskap Kognitionsvetenskap;

    Abstract : The main purpose of the thesis is to discuss the accident models which underlie accident prevention in general and road safety in particular, and the consequences of relying on a particular model have for actual preventive work. The discussion centres on two main topics. READ MORE

  2. 2. Accident Risk and Environmental Assessment : Development of an Assessment Guideline with Examination in Northern Scandinavia

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Kulturgeografiska institutionen

    Author : Markus Lundkvist; Uppsala universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Geography; accident; risk; hazard; environmental assessment; geomorphology; railway; road; avalanche; debris flow; rock fall; slush flow; torrent; moose; reindeer; environmental impact assessment; proposal alternatives; Kiruna; Narvik; Geografi; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences Other earth sciences; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap Övrig geovetenskap;

    Abstract : In environmental impact assessment (EIA), accident risk should be considered as one impact. However, few studies have compared assessed risk levels with documented accidents. There is thus a need for assessing accuracy of risk assessment methodologies. READ MORE

  3. 3. Numerical Accident Reconstructions A Biomechanical Tool to Understand and Prevent Head Injuries

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Madelen Fahlstedt; KTH.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Head injuries; Accident Reconstruction; Finite element analysis; Injury prevention; Helmet; Cyclist; Pedestrian; Epidemiology; Applied Medical Technology; Tillämpad medicinsk teknik;

    Abstract : Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are a major health and socioeconomic problem throughout the world, with an estimated 10 million deaths and instances of hospitalization annually. Numerical methods such as finite element (FE) methods can be used to study head injuries and optimize the protection, which can lead to a decrease in the number of injuries. READ MORE

  4. 4. Influence Of Road Feature Variables On Accident Rate

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Sarbaz Othman; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Övrig samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur; Other civil engineering and architecture; Övrig teknisk mekanik; Other engineering mechanics; Traffic safety; accident rate; black spots; safe road geometry; accident causation;

    Abstract : The main objective of this traffic safety investigation was to find critical road parameters affecting accident rate (AR). The secondary objective was to analyze any identified risk factors from a vehicle dynamics perspective. READ MORE

  5. 5. Head Injuries in Car-to-Pedestrian Accidents - Investigation of Head Impact Dynamics, Injury Mechanisms and Countermeasures

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Jianfeng Yao; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2010]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Farkostteknik; Vehicle engineering; Pedestrian accident; head injury; injury mechanism; head protection; accident analysis; accident reconstruction; mathematical simulation;

    Abstract : The aim of this study was to investigate head impact dynamics and to establish risk functions for head injuries by mathematical reconstructions of real-world car-to-pedestrian accidents. Furthermore, an attempt was made to develop an approach for the design and evaluation of head-protective devices. READ MORE
