Abstract

Advances in Safety and Reliability considers issues relating to the establishment, management and assurance of safety and reliability in human-technology-environment interactions of modern society. This volume includes scientific and technical papers on safety and reliability, as well as methods for the assessment and management of risks. Set in a wide range of industrial, societal and governmental sectors, the book presents topical aspects of safety, reliability and risk in the design, production and operation of industrial products, systems and infrastructures. The analysis includes technical, human and organizational criteria. Integral demonstrations of the use of risk analysis and reliability assessment are provided in a variety of practical applications; these include major technological systems and infrastructures, ranging from chemical and nuclear installations, through aviation and aerospace, road and rail transport, to civil and structural systems. Advances in Safety and Reliability is of interest to industrialists, regulators, managers, investors, decision makers, universities, research organisations and government bodies, and everyone involved in safety, reliability and risk understanding, assessment, management and communication.
