  1. 1. Safety and decision-making

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Niklas Möller; Sven Ove Hansson; Nils-Eric Sahlin; [2006]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; conceptual analysis; safety; risk; epstemic uncertainty; epstemic values; values in risk assessment; risk analysis; risk management; safety engineering; HUMANITIES and RELIGION History and philosophy subjects Philosophy subjects; HUMANIORA och RELIGIONSVETENSKAP Historisk-filosofiska ämnen Filosofiämnen;

    Abstract : Safety is an important topic for a wide range of disciplines, such as engineering, economics, sociology, psychology, political science and philosophy, and plays a central role in risk analysis and risk management. The aim of this thesis is to develop a concept of safety that is relevant for decision-making, and to elucidate its consequences for risk and safety research and practices. READ MORE

  2. 2. Structural Safety Analysis of Bow-Doors

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Ulf Karlsson; [2004]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ship design; structure; safety; fatigue.; arm; IACS S8; damage; bow-door; analysis;

    Abstract : Bow-doors are one of the most vulnerable parts on a RoRo-vessel. At the same time, they are necessary for the profitability of todays RoRo-vessels.The minimum design rules for bow-door systems, stated in the International Association of Classification Societies (IACS) S8, constitute the basis for the class rules.

  3. 3. 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.

  4. 4. Risk-based ship security analysis : a decision-support approach

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Hans Liwång; Jonas W. Ringsberg; Martin Norsell; Rolf Skjong; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; naval ship; piracy; risk-based; risk control options; ship security analysis; survivability; uncertainty analysis; militära fartyg; sjöröveri; riskanalys; sjöfartsskydd; överlevnadsförmåga; Försvarssystem; Military Technology;

    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.

  5. 5. Components, Safety Interfaces, and Compositional Analysis

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Jonas Elmquist; Simin Nadjm-Tehrani; [2007]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Component-based system development; safety-critical systems; safety interfaces; compositional analysis; modelbased development; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Component-based software development has emerged as a promising approach for developing complex software systems by composing smaller independently developed components into larger component assemblies. This approach offers means to increase software reuse, achieve higher flexibility and shorter time-to-market by the use of off-the-shelf components (COTS). READ MORE
