  1. 1. Safety at Rail-Road Level Crossings

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Mohammad Shahriari; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [1993]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Industriell teknik och ekonomi; Industrial engineering and economy; Teknisk mekanik; Engineering mechanics; rail road crossings; safety; traffic safety; driver behaviour; risk analysis;

    Abstract : Safety related to traffic at rail/road level crossings has long been a major issue for rail operators all over the world. Eliminating these level crossings entirely would be a desirable solution. However converting them into separate types is very expensive and not reasonable in many cases, e.g. READ MORE

  2. 2. Traffic Safety Dimensions and the Power Model to Describe the Effect of Speed on Safety

    University dissertation from Traffic Engineering

    Author : Göran Nilsson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2004]
    Keywords : consequence; risk; dimension; accident rate; injury rqte; speed; speed limit; cross-sectionel; Road transport technology; Safety technology; Vägtransportteknik; Säkerhetsteknik; accidents; Traffic safety; exposure; Engineering and Technology Civil Engineering Infrastrukturteknik; Engineering and Technology Civil Engineering Infrastructure Engineering;

    Abstract : Traffic safety work needs different methods and tools in order to choose and evsaluate traffic safety measures. The thesis contributes to this problem by presenting and visualizing a method which describes the traffic safety situation in several dimensions. READ MORE

  3. 3. Safety Culture in Sea and Aviation Transport

    University dissertation from Ergonomics and Aerosol Technology Department of Design Sciences Lund University

    Author : Åsa Ek; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2006]
    Keywords : air traffic control; organizational climate; safety culture; passenger shipping; airport ground handling; Social sciences; Samhällsvetenskaper; Development psychology; Utvecklingspsykologi; Applied and experimental psychology; Tillämpad och experimentell psykologi; Technological sciences; Teknik; Säkerhetsteknik; Safety technology; Teknik och teknologier Maskinteknik Produktionsteknik; arbetsvetenskap och ergonomi; Engineering and Technology Mechanical Engineering Production Engineering; Human Work Science and Ergonomics;

    Abstract : The research presented in this thesis investigates sea and aviation transport safety culture, with a focus on perceptions and attitudes. A safety culture reflects the attitudes, beliefs, perceptions, and values that individuals share in relation to safety. READ MORE

  4. 4. Predictive models for accidents on urban links - A focus on vulnerable road users

    University dissertation from Dept of Technology and Society, Lund Institute of Technology, Box 118, S-221 00 LUND, Sweden

    Author : Thomas Jonsson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2005]
    Keywords : Transportteknik; Road transport technology; Transport technology; Teknik; Technological sciences; Stads- och glesbygdsplanering; Town and country planning; speed; links; urban; safety; vulnerable road users; modelling; prediction; crash; traffic safety; accident; Vägtransportteknik; Teknik och teknologier Samhällsbyggnadsteknik Infrastrukturteknik; Engineering and Technology Civil Engineering Infrastructure Engineering;

    Abstract : Much of earlier work on predictive models for accidents has been focused on rural traffic or urban intersections. This work has aimed at identifying and investigating possible improvements to predictive models for accidents on urban links. A special focus has been on the accidents of vulnerable road users.

  5. 5. Indicators for traffic safety assessment and prediction and their application in micro-simulation modelling : a study of urban and suburban intersections

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Jeffery Archer; KTH.; KTH.; [2005]
    Keywords : Social Sciences; Samhällsvetenskap; Social sciences; Traffic safety; proximal safety indicators; micro-simulation; safety analysis; Samhällsvetenskap; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : In order to achieve sustainable long-term transport infrastructure development, there is a growing need for fast, reliable and effective methods to evaluate and predict the impact of traffic safety measures. Recognising this need, and the need for an active traffic safety approach, this thesis focuses on traffic safety assessment and prediction based on the use of safety indicators that measure the spatial and/or temporal proximity of safety critical events.
