  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. Worst Credible Process Fire: Experiences from the Norwegian Petroleum Industry

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Riskhantering (CI)

    Author : Linnéa Tengvall; [2019]
    Keywords : Worst Credible Process Fire; Norwegian offshore industry; offshore fire safety; offshore process safety; offshore design; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The term Worst Credible Process Fire (WCPF) was introduced to the Norwegian Petroleum Industry as a complement to the probabilistic approach to define design loads for offshore facilities. Currently there are mainly two documents about the WCPF being the SINTEF report (2017) and the definition in NORSOK S-001 (2018). READ MORE

  3. 3. Numerical solution for derivative models using finite difference methods and how this can be used with Monte Carlo simulation

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Matematisk statistik

    Author : Marcus Hallabro; [2019]
    Keywords : Finite Difference Method; Option Pricing; Feynman-Kac Rep- resentation; Monte Carlo Simulation; Negative Probabilities.; Mathematics and Statistics;

    Abstract : Derivative models often come in the form of stochastic differential equations. From these equations a partial differential equation (PDE) can be derived. By discretizing the PDE the numerical solution is obtained on a form where the value of the derivative can be seen as a probabilistic weighting of future values. READ MORE

  4. 4. Reliability – based analysis of embankment dams

    University essay from KTH/Jord- och bergmekanik

    Author : Xiaochen Liu; [2019]
    Keywords : Embankment dams; reliability-based analysis; slope stability analysis; internal erosion; dam safety; fyllningsdammar; tillförlitlighetsbaserad analys; analys av släntstabilitet; inre erosion; dammsäkerhet;

    Abstract : Embankment dams are widely used as water-retaining structures through the world. Two principal structural failure modes of embankment dams are internal erosion and slope instability. The objective of this thesis is to investigate the feasibility of applying probabilistic methods in embankment dam assessment. READ MORE

  5. 5. vehicleLang: a probabilistic modeling and simulation language for vehicular cyber attacks

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för elektroteknik och datavetenskap (EECS)

    Author : Sotirios Katsikeas; [2018]
    Keywords : Domain Specific Language; Probabilistic Modeling; Cyber Security; Threat Modeling; Attack Graphs; Vehicular Security; Domänspecifikt språk; Probabilistisk modellering; Cybersäkerhet; Hotmodellering; Attackgrafer; Fordonsäkerhet;

    Abstract : The technological advancements in the automotive industry as well as in thefield of communication technologies done the last years have transformed thevehicles to complex machines that include not only electrical and mechanicalcomponents but also a great number of electronic components. Furthermore,modern vehicles are now connected to the Wide Area Network (WAN) and inthe near future communications will also be present between the cars (Vehicleto-Vehicle, V2V) and between cars and infrastructure (Vehicle-to-Infrastructure, V2I), something that can be found as Internet of Vehicles (IoV)in the literature.
