  1. 1. Having a New Pair of Glasses : Applying Systemic Accident Models on Road Safety

    Author : Yu-Hsing Huang; Erik Hollnagel; Pietro Carlo Cacciabue; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; accident model; road safety; accident prevention; accident analysis; Cognitive science; Kognitionsvetenskap;

    Abstract : The main purpose of the thesis is to discuss the accident models which underlie accident prevention in general and road safety in particular, and the consequences of relying on a particular model have for actual preventive work. The discussion centres on two main topics. READ MORE

  2. 2. Accident Risk and Environmental Assessment : Development of an Assessment Guideline with Examination in Northern Scandinavia

    Author : Markus Lundkvist; Lennart Strömquist; Christer Jonasson; Rolf Nyberg; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Geography; accident; risk; hazard; environmental assessment; geomorphology; railway; road; avalanche; debris flow; rock fall; slush flow; torrent; moose; reindeer; environmental impact assessment; proposal alternatives; Kiruna; Narvik; Geografi; Other earth sciences; Övrig geovetenskap;

    Abstract : In environmental impact assessment (EIA), accident risk should be considered as one impact. However, few studies have compared assessed risk levels with documented accidents. There is thus a need for assessing accuracy of risk assessment methodologies. READ MORE

  3. 3. Toward Accident Prevention Through Machine Learning Analysis of Accident Reports

    Author : May Shayboun; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SOCIAL SCIENCES; health and safety.; construction; machine learning; prevention; Accident report; accident causation models;

    Abstract : Occupational safety remains of interest in the construction sector. The frequency of accidents has decreased in Sweden but only to a level that remains constant over the last ten years. READ MORE

  4. 4. Numerical Accident Reconstructions : A Biomechanical Tool to Understand and Prevent Head Injuries

    Author : Madelen Fahlstedt; Svein Kleiven; Peter Halldin; Michael Gilchrist; KTH; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Head injuries; Accident Reconstruction; Finite element analysis; Injury prevention; Helmet; Cyclist; Pedestrian; Epidemiology; Applied Medical Technology; Tillämpad medicinsk teknik;

    Abstract : Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are a major health and socioeconomic problem throughout the world, with an estimated 10 million deaths and instances of hospitalization annually. Numerical methods such as finite element (FE) methods can be used to study head injuries and optimize the protection, which can lead to a decrease in the number of injuries. READ MORE

  5. 5. Influence Of Road Feature Variables On Accident Rate

    Author : Sarbaz Najib Othman; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; safe road geometry; accident rate; black spots; accident causation; Traffic safety;

    Abstract : The main objective of this traffic safety investigation was to find critical road parameters affecting accident rate (AR). The secondary objective was to analyze any identified risk factors from a vehicle dynamics perspective. READ MORE
