  • Aging aircraft: too old to fly?

    The problem of metal fatigue of aircraft is discussed in the context of risk analysis and assessment. The steps taken by aircraft designers to minimize risk are examined. A major defect of fatigue testing, which is its failure to take into account the effects of corrosion on fatigue cracks, is addressed. The pursuit of more effective methods of nondestructive testing is noted. The role played by fatigue and corrosion in the Aloha Airlines accident of April 28, 1988, in which a flight attendant was lost when a 5.5 meter-long portion of the front fuselage of a Boeing 737 ripped off during flight, is cited throughout, and Boeing's approach to the problem is questioned.<<ETX>>

  • The US nuclear industry: a changing complexion

    The direction and character of the nuclear power industry more than a decade after its course was profoundly altered by the Arab oil embargo and the accident at Three Mile Island are described. Nuclear utilities are finding that the extremely competitive environment in the operation and maintenance of plants has led to cut-rate prices and a host of new services. Still, the prospect of committing to a new nuclear plant remains unattractive to most, so long as no significant changes occur in the state regulatory and licensing climates. Caught in the middle are the businesses that make up the industry's three core categories: the suppliers, who design and produce reactors and steam supply systems; the architect-engineers (A-Es), who design plants around that equipment; and the service providers, who perform tests, maintenance, and refueling, do inspections, and control inventory at nuclear plants. A-Es have been forced to look beyond the nuclear industry for new business. However, nearly all major A-Es are striving to stay in the industry and keep as many of their experienced engineers as possible.<<ETX>>

  • European Telecommunications Environmental Charter

    The European Telecommunications Environmental Charter is a common environmental policy of the signatories who commit themselves to improve their environmental performance. To achieve this, an ETNO working group Environment has been established. Based on common requests, this group works out joint activities, e.g. common environmental indicators: environmental benchmarking; common ecological requests for products: guideline for environmentally responsible procurement; common environmental problems and environmental benefits: enhanced knowledge gained by workshops; common demand for external communications: and ETNO environmental report and conference. Besides these joint activities there are further ones which are better carried out in the individual companies. The implementation of an environmental management system (EMS), for instance, must be done individually. Several charter signatories are in the process of doing this. Swisscom has already been certified company- wide according to ISO 14001. Of course an EMS will considerably improve the environmental management in the company and because an EMS includes a set of environmental indicators-it also will be the basis for a more extensive environmental benchmarking; among companies. Environmental indicators, especially energy indicators, are essential in order to get a continuous environmental improvement.

  • A human reliability analysis methodology for industrial and process facilities

    Reference is made to industrial accidents such as Bhopal and Chernobyl, and the increasing recognition of the critical role of humans in the safe and successful operation of complex process systems. Such accidents have focused attention on the evaluation of human performance reliability. The need for human reliability analysis (HRA), and the resulting progress in HRA techniques, have been especially strong in the nuclear power industry because of the visibility and perceived risk of nuclear plant operation. The underlying concept of HRA, to better understand the human interaction with complex systems, reaches beyond the boundaries of any single industry and makes HRA a useful tool in the assessment of safety and reliability for any process of power plant. A methodology for human reliability analysis is described, and its application to the general needs of industrial and process plant operation is discussed.<<ETX>>

  • Emergency Response Capabilities-Past and Present

    This paper focusses on emergency response capabilities at nuclear plants with the TMI-2 accident in perspective. The major thesis is that accident prevention by plant operators is the keystone, and the development of the Safety Parameter Display Systems (SPDS) is an essential operator's aid for thinking-through, and formulating strategies for preventing serious accidents from occuring. Human limits for processing information under stress is matched to the SPDS capability for displaying key plant safety variables in a concise, readily understandable manner. The industry response and general experience with the SPDS is reviewed. It is suggested that the SPDS, together with the development of intelligent routines, will play a major role in future improvements in emergency response capability.

  • The confusion over stray voltage

    The subject of stray voltage, once mentioned only in relation to dairy farms, has today become an issue in the industry for other reasons, not the least of which is safety. The general reduction of industry participation in the standards-writing function of the IEEE has created a situation in which nonprofessionals, such as state legislators and lawyers, are rewriting definitions and creating new terms, arbitrary limits, and testing procedures, thereby costing the industry many millions of dollars, which could have been used far more wisely to promote both safety and reliability.

  • Establishing Fingerprint Pollution Source Identification System of the Accidental Water Pollution Emergency Based on MapInfo

    We design and develop the Fingerprint pollution source identification system of accidental water pollution emergency. It's built on MapInfo platform, and developed by MapBasic language. By comparing the water quality test result of the accidental water pollution emergency with the "fingerprint" characteristics database, the system identifies specific sources of pollutants and provides appropriate prevention and response measures to make sure that the accidental water pollution emergency management can be taken more perfect, targeted, reasonable and scientific.

  • Human-Oriented Manufacturing System (HOMS) - Does it suggest a new type of robot?

  • Traditional software development's effects on safety

    Faults in a system can result in catastrophic consequences such as death, injury or environmental harm. For example, the Therac 25 incident killed two patients and severely injured a third patient due to a software error. The Therac 25 is a computer-controlled therapeutic radiation machine. Governmental, industrial, and academic researchers are searching for new ways to prevent and detect hazardous faults when developing and certifying safety- critical software systems. To determine the effects of these new techniques, this paper discusses an experiment where developers in the control group followed a traditional methodology while the experimental group followed a modified methodology, which consisted of the control group's methodology along with certain safety-specific methods and guidelines for the following life- cycle phases: specification, design, and verification. The results showed that the experimental group had fewer latent safety-critical faults than the control group.<<ETX>>

  • Handling risk: expertise and regulatory politics in Germany, 1870-1913

    This study of Germany reveals that the successful handling of risk through regulatory politics based on scientific expertise results from three essentials: (1) government bureaus for research and testing as applied to specific areas of risk; (2) the participation of interested parties in bargaining about standards and values; and (3) a mentality of the public at large to accept limited risks if they are part of the so-called "acknowledged scientific and technical practice". Such a pattern of regulation came to birth during the last few decades of the 19th Century and has been in force ever since in industrialized societies. It has found its best manifestation in the model of "standardization by limiting values", which symbolically combines the instrumentalist and the legitimizing functions of science in the processes of regulation.
