Book Description

Risk, Reliability and Societal Safety contains papers presented at the 16th European Safety and Reliability Conference (ESREL 2007) in Stavanger, Norway, June 2007. Topics covered include: risk and reliability analysis methods; maintenance optimisation, and risk management. Special focus has been placed on societal safety issues, such as vulnerability analysis of critical infrastructures, risk perception, communication and governance. The application areas range from oil and gas, nuclear engineering and civil engineering to information technology and communication, security, transportation, health and medicine.
