  2. 2. Integrated and Probabilistic Risk Analysis of Drinking Water Systems

    Author : Andreas Lindhe; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; water safety plan; customer minutes lost; probabilistic; fault tree analysis; risk analysis; risk; integrated; drinking water system; hazard; uncertainty;

    Abstract : Drinking water supply is an essential public function but is at the same time exposed to risks. Since a totally risk-free society is not attainable, risks need to be managed efficiently to achieve an acceptable level of risk. READ MORE

  3. 3. Essays on Shocks, Welfare, and Poverty Dynamics: Microeconometric Evidence from Ethiopia

  4. 4. Towards reliable seismic hazard assessment in underground mines

    Author : Wille Törnman; Savka Dineva; Jesper Martinsson; Adam Jonsson; Björn Lund; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Mining and Rock Engineering; Gruv- och berganläggningsteknik;

    Abstract : Seismic hazard is used for national, regional, and local level to ensure safe constructions in specific areas. In the mining industry this information is valuable e.g. to  design infrastructure or rock support, to reduce the risk of rock burst and to minimise the risk of locating personnel in hazardous areas.

  5. 5. Assessment of induced seismic hazard and excavation damage in deep underground mines

    Author : Emilia Nordström; Savka Dineva; Erling Nordlund; Johan Wesseloo; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Mining and Rock Engineering; Gruv- och berganläggningsteknik;

    Abstract : Mining is a continuous process of extracting valuable minerals from the earth. It is an important part of human society and development that we cannot live without.  Although, it requires an extensive amount of resources, underground mining is comparatively faster and more environmental feasible over surface mining.
