    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; risk; consequence; dimension; accident rate; injury rqte; speed; speed limit; cross-sectionel; Road transport technology; Safety technology; Vägtransportteknik; Säkerhetsteknik; accidents; Traffic safety; exposure;

    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. Valuing Reductions in the Risk of Traffic Accidents Based on Empirical Studies in Sweden

    University dissertation from Lund Institute of Technology

    Author : Ulf Persson; [2004]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Säkerhetsteknik; Safety technology; Vägtransportteknik; Road transport technology; Road Traffic; Risk Reduction; Value of Life; Cost of Accidents; Stated Preference; Contingent Valuation;

    Abstract : At the beginning of the 1990s the Swedish National Road Administration (SNRA) adopted the willingness to pay (WTP) approach for estimating the benefits of safety improvements. However, since then there have been discussions about how to find the most valid and reliable empirical methods to conduct WTP studies. READ MORE

  4. 4. 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 Tehler; [2003]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Safety technology; Byggnadsteknik; 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.
