  1. 1. Secure emergency communications of emergency responders a case study of Kemi municipality in Finland

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Heidi Hartikainen; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; emergency management; information security; emergency response; emergency communications; secure communications; Information technology - Computer science; Informationsteknik - Datorvetenskap; Data och Systemvetenskap; Computer and Systems Science;

    Abstract : Emergency response is highly time-critical and information dependent: every moment counts and organizations need to access various information that supports their decision making and informs them about the scale and location of the emergency, the damages, and the availability of human and physical resources. This kind information can originate from many different places and the situation can be stressful as there is a need to communicate quickly, reliably and accurately within their own organization, but also inter-organizationally.

    Abstract : Information from performed risk and vulnerability analyses, evaluation of responses in relation to actual emergencies etcetera can be very useful in efforts directed at preventing, mitigating and/or preparing for future emergencies. This thesis focuses on the development of methods for such analysis and evaluation. READ MORE

  3. 3. Risk and Vulnerability Analysis of Complex Systems: a basis for proactive emergency management

    University dissertation from Fire Safety Engineering and Systems Safety

    Author : Henrik Hassel; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2007]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; values; operational definitions; emergency response capabilities; Risk- och sårbarhetsanalys; storskaliga tekniska infrastrukturer; värderingar; complex systems; komplexa system; krishanteringsförmåga; Risk and vulnerability analysis; operationella definitioner; large-scale technical infrastructures;

    Abstract : The present thesis concerns methods and knowledge that are useful when analysing the risks and vulnerabilities of complex systems in a societal emergency management context. Operational definitions of vulnerability and emergency response capabilities are suggested and two methods for analysing the vulnerability of critical infrastructure networks, based on the suggested definition, are presented.

  4. 4. New Forms of Collaboration in Emergency Response Systems A framework for participatory design of information systems

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Kayvan Yousefi Mojir; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : An emergency response systems (ERS) is usually responsible for delivering essential services to save lives and minimise environmental damage in case of small, frequent or large-scale emergencies. The ongoing global financial crisis, lack of professional resources, public sector cuts and rising public expectations are some of the challenges ERSs currently are facing. READ MORE

  5. 5. Improving emergency braking performance of heavy vehicles

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Leon Henderson; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; heavy vehicles; pneumatic brake actuator; ABS; pneumatic braking system; Slip control braking; HGV; vehicle testing; tyre dynamics;

    Abstract : Previous studies by the Cambridge Vehicle Dynamics Consortium (CVDC) have suggested that, by improving the control bandwidth of conventional Heavy Goods Vehicle(HGV) brake actuators and using a ‘slip control’ braking strategy, HGV stopping distances could be reduced by up to 30% over existing systems. The work covered in this thesis looks to: validate the CVDC’s previous braking performance predictions through Hardware-in-the-Loop (HiL) simulation, investigate how in-plane tyre dynamics may influence such a system’s performance, develop and build a next generation high-bandwidth braking system for vehicle implementation and carry out comparative back-to-back vehicle tests between the new system and commercially available HGV ABS.
