Book Description :

Process safety is a disciplined framework for managing the integrity of operating systems and processes handling hazardous substances. Continued occurrence of major losses have had a significant impact on the industry's approaches to modern process safety. Consequently, the process safety management is now globally recognized as the primary approach for establishing the level of safety in operations required to manage high-hazard processes. With this in mind, and also due to the evolution in regulatory thinking that integrated traditional occupational safety with process safety, several process safety methods were developed by industry associations around the world. Although all these methods share the same basic objectives, the number of program elements may vary depending on the criteria used. Consequently, selecting the best method to chemical process safety could be challenging due to the existence of different options. I decided to write this project to address this challenge by provide an overview of the most important recent advancements and contributions in chemical process safety. The project helps researchers and professionals to obtain guidance on the selection and practice of chemical process safety methods. The main features of this volume are: To acquaint the reader/researcher with the fundamentals of the process safety To provide most recent advancements and contributions in the given topic from practical point of view To provide readers views/opinions of the expert in each topic To provide guidance on the practice of the given topic The selection of the author(s) of each chapter from among the leading researchers and/or practitioners for each given topic

Book Description :

This book details decision analysis techniques with applications in engineering design and management and also analyzes decision making and risk management processes to better understand and improve decision making systems. Most books on decision analysis fall into two categories: those that are straightforward management decision making texts that that do not delve into more sophisticated techniques and concepts and those that emphasize the theoretical and analytical aspects, but do not discuss other perspectives on decision making. As such, this is the first book to present multiple perspectives on decision making without being too theoretical, all in effort to be useful to current and future engineers. The book presents three varied perspectives on decision making: problem-solving; the decision making process; and decision making systems. Practical examples and applications are plentiful and illustrate how to model and improve decision making systems. The mathematical rigor is kept to a minimum and is only used when comparing and contrasting different techniques. Extensive instructor resources are available, including worked solutions to all exercises, daily lesson plans for lectures, in-class activities, and sample assignments and exams. Topical coverage includes: an introduction to engineering decision making; decision making fundamentals; multi-criteria decision making; group decision making; decision making under uncertainty; game theory; decision making processes; the value of information; risk management; decision making systems; and modeling and improving decision making systems.

Book Description :

An introductory text on the investigation of industrial accidents Forensic engineering should be seen as a rigorous approach to the discovery of root causes that lead to an accident or near-miss. The approach should be suitable to identify both the immediate causes as well as the underlying factors that affected, amplified, or modified the events in terms of consequences, evolution, dynamics, etc., as well as the contribution of an eventual "human error". This book is a concise and introductory volume to the forensic engineering discipline which helps the reader to recognize the link among those important, very specialized aspects of the same problem in the global strategy of learning from accidents (or near-misses). The reader will benefit from a single point of access to this very large, technical literature that can be only correctly understood with the right terms, definitions, and links in mind. Keywords: Presents simple (real) cases, as well as giving an overview of more complex ones, each of them investigated within the same framework; Gives the readers the bibliography to access more in-depth specific aspects; Offers an overview of the most commonly used methodologies and techniques to investigate accidents, including the evidence that should be collected to define the cause, dynamics and responsibilities of an industrial accident, as well as the most appropriate methods to collect and preserve the evidence through an appropriate chain of security. Principles of Forensic Engineering Applied to Industrial Accidents is essential reading for researchers and practitioners in forensic engineering, as well as graduate students in forensic engineering departments and other professionals.
