  1. 1. The verification and validation of a probabilistic risk analysis method for road tunnels

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Brandteknik

    Author : Kim Genberg; Karin Sandin; [2020]
    Keywords : Tunnels; fire; evacuation; probabilistic risk analysis; QRA; verification and validation; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : In this thesis, a new probabilistic risk assessment tool for road tunnels has been verified and validated. The verification and validation were performed along with a literature review to find different key variables that affect the risk in a road tunnel and find out how these variables can be handled.

  2. 2. Antaganden i riskutredningar vid fysisk planering med avseende på transport av farligt gods och deras effekt på riskbilden

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Riskhantering (CI)

    Author : Fredrik Strindberg; Jesper Svensson; [2018]
    Keywords : Risk assessment; Land-use planning; Transportation of dangerous goods; Assumptions; Societal risk; QRA; Consequence analysis; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Risk assessments regarding transportation of dangerous goods are a vital part of land-use planning. This is regulated by laws and regulations to ensure that risk levels are acceptable. Thus, it is of interest to the general public that these risk assessments are as accurate as possible. READ MORE

  3. 3. QRA with respect to domino effects and property damage

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Riskhantering (CI); Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Brandteknik; Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Riskhantering och Samhällssäkerhet

    Author : Mathias Lööf; Leo Kardell; [2014]
    Keywords : Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : In 1996 the European Union adopted the Seveso II Directive. The Directive stated actions to be taken in the process industry in order to prevent and limit the impact of serious chemical accidents. In the Directive it is clearly stated that domino effects shall be considered, but the level of detail required is not specified. READ MORE

  4. 4. Title: Aging of mechanical components on a modeled offshore oil & gas platform and the influence on the risk level – Incorporating renewals and surveillance
