    Abstract : The protection of shipping does not come without hazards and threats for military forces, individual civilian ship operators and crews. With particular focus on security threats, this thesis is about how to prepare for such operations without introducing unnecessary risks, i.e., supporting conscious risk-taking related to ship security.

  2. 2. Sensitivity and Uncertainty Analysis Methods : with Applications to a Road Traffic Emission Model

    Author : Olle Eriksson; Stig Danielsson; Rolf Sundberg; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Emission; Grid; Model; Pollutant; Response surface; Road traffic; Sensitivity analysis; Simulation; Uncertainty analysis; Avgaser; Vägtrafik; Miljöaspekter; Statistics; Statistik;

    Abstract : There is always a need to study the properties of complex input–output systems, properties that may be very difficult to determine. Two such properties are the output’s sensitivity to changes in the inputs and the output’s uncertainty if the inputs are uncertain. READ MORE

  3. 3. Handling severe uncertainty in strategic project appraisal : Methods and applications of context analysis

    Author : Anton Talantsev; Aron Larsson; David Sundgren; John Ward; Stockholms universitet; []

    Abstract : The long-term success or failure of a strategic project is largely shaped by its context. Therefore, the assessment of the external factors influencing the fulfilment of project long-term goals is vital for the effective project appraisal and planning. READ MORE

  4. 4. Uncertainty, variability and environmental risk analysis

    Author : Monika Filipsson; Tomas Öberg; Bo Bergbäck; Lars Rosén; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : Contaminated land; exposure assessment; exposure factors; risk analysis; risk perception; uncertainty; variability; probabilistic risk assessment; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Miljövetenskap; Environmental Science;

    Abstract : The negative effects of hazardous substances and possible measures that can be taken are evaluated in the environmental risk analysis process, consisting of risk assessment, risk communication and risk management. Uncertainty due to lack of knowledge and natural variability are always present in this process. READ MORE

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

    Author : Håkan Frantzich; Avdelningen för Brandteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; event tree; fire engineering design; 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
