This detailed publication describes typical formal safety analysis methods and their application in the context of marine and offshore engineering systems. It concentrates on safety analysis techniques and their application to the design stage, operations and finally to decommissioning and removal. It also discusses influencing elements, including reliability, maintenance, offshore safety case approach, formal safety assessment, risk-based regime, risk acceptance criteria, decision-making, safety management system and human error.
This book is based on a combination of many years’ research and teaching experience from Professor Wang and the extensive industrial experience from Dr Trbojevic. As a result, it has both academic and industrial flavours with particular reference to marine and offshore risk assessment and safety management. Other features of this book are its treatment of bow ties in risk analysis and safety management.
The book looks in detail at safety and reliability; marine and offshore accidents; offshore safety case approach, formal ship safety assessment and design for safety; formal safety analysis methods; risk acceptability criteria; application of some typical formal safety analysis methods; and novel safety modelling and decision-making techniques.
This book will be beneficial for both industrial applications and academic research. It serves as a good reference for marine and offshore safety engineers within the industry and by undergraduates (final year) and postgraduates (MSc and PhD) in maritime or risk assessment related subjects. There are several useful sections that briefly introduce the reader to the marine and offshore scenes and set the mood by defining the safety regimes that govern marine and offshore design and operations. For the more advanced reader, the final chapter examines the root of problems of coping with uncertainty in the available data and risk-based multiple criteria decision-making.
