  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; TEKNIKVETENSKAP; TECHNOLOGY;

    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. 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; TEKNIKVETENSKAP; TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES;

    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.

  4. 4. 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; 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.

  5. 5. Learning for safety in health care and air traffic control

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Sven Ternov; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2011]
    Keywords : accident models; Risk management; complex systems; health care; air traffic control; MTO analysis; DEB-analysis; proactive risk analysis.; TEKNIKVETENSKAP; TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : Introduction Risk management in enterprises, organisations and companies has had a long and complicated history. During the eighties, and at least during the beginning of the nineties, the notion concerning risk management was that if an accident happened in an otherwise perfect system it was due to the human operator in some way being the cause of the error.
