  1. 1. Decision Analysis in Fire Safety Engineering - Analysing Investments in Fire Safety

    University dissertation from Department of Fire Safety Engineering and Systems Safety, Lund University

    Author : Henrik Johansson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2003]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Byggnadsteknik; Safety technology; Building construction; investment appraisal; epistemic uncertainties; fire safety; Decision analysis; risk analysis; Säkerhetsteknik;

    Abstract : The application of decision analytical methods to the evaluation of investments in fire safety was investigated, particularly with the aim of being able to suggest a method for analysing a specific investment in fire safety for a specific factory. Attention was directed above all at the handling of cases of large epistemic uncertainty regarding both probabilities and utilities, Bayesian decision theory serving as a basis for the development of the method.

  2. 2. Safety and decision-making

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Niklas Möller; KTH.; [2006]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; conceptual analysis; safety; risk; epstemic uncertainty; epstemic values; values in risk assessment; risk analysis; risk management; safety engineering; HUMANITIES and RELIGION History and philosophy subjects Philosophy subjects; HUMANIORA och RELIGIONSVETENSKAP Historisk-filosofiska ämnen Filosofiämnen;

    Abstract : Safety is an important topic for a wide range of disciplines, such as engineering, economics, sociology, psychology, political science and philosophy, and plays a central role in risk analysis and risk management. The aim of this thesis is to develop a concept of safety that is relevant for decision-making, and to elucidate its consequences for risk and safety research and practices. READ MORE

  3. 3. Risk-based ship security analysis a decision-support approach

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Hans Liwång; Försvarshögskolan.; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Militärteknik; Militärteknik; naval ship; piracy; risk-based; risk control options; ship security analysis; survivability; uncertainty analysis; militära fartyg; sjöröveri; riskanalys; sjöfartsskydd; överlevnadsförmåga;

    Abstract : Sjöfartsskydd bedrivs idag både av militära styrkor och civila redare. Det är inte ofarligt, men nödvändigt och viktigt. Med fokus på säkerhetshot undersöker denna avhandling hur fartyg ska förbereda sig inför potentiellt farlig verksamhet, det vill säga hur man skapar ett lämpligt riskmedvetande i förhållande till fartygsskydd.

  4. 4. Uncertainty and Risk Analysis in Fire Safety Engineering

    University dissertation from Department of Fire Safety Engineering and Systems Safety, Lund University

    Author : Håkan Frantzich; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [1998]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; fire engineering design; event tree; reliability index; FOSM; Monte Carlo simulation; Risk analysis; uncertainty analysis; response surface.; Technological sciences; Teknik;

    Abstract : Two Quantitative Risk Analysis (QRA) methods are presented which can be used to quantify the risk to occupants in, for example, a building in which a fire has broken out. The extended QRA considers the inherent uncertainty in the variables explicitly. READ MORE

  5. 5. Uncertainty in Quantitative Risk Analysis - Characterisation and Methods of Treatment

    University dissertation from Fire Safety Engineering and Systems Safety

    Author : Marcus Abrahamsson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2002]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; decision making; kvantitativ riskanalys; safety; quantitative risk analysis; uncertainty analysis; osäkerhetsanalys; säkerhet; beslutsfattande;

    Abstract : The fundamental problems related to uncertainty in quantitative risk analyses, used in decision making in safety-related issues (for instance, in land use planning and licensing procedures for hazardous establishments and activities) are presented and discussed, together with the different types of uncertainty that are introduced in the various stages of an analysis. A survey of methods for the practical treatment of uncertainty, with emphasis on the kind of information that is needed for the different methods, and the kind of results they produce, is also presented.
