Safety analysis in process facilities: Comparison of fault tree and Bayesian network approaches
We show that Bayesian network (BN) is an alternative technique with ample potential for application in safety analysis. Expand

Dynamic safety analysis of process systems by mapping bow-tie into Bayesian network
Abstract Among the various techniques used for safety analysis of process systems, bow-tie (BT) analysis is becoming a popular technique as it represents an accident scenario from causes to effects.Expand

Quantitative risk analysis of offshore drilling operations: A Bayesian approach
Blowouts are among the most undesired and feared accidents during drilling operations. The dynamic nature of blowout accidents, resulting from both rapidly changing physical parameters andExpand

Analyzing system safety and risks under uncertainty using a bow-tie diagram: An innovative approach
Abstract A bow-tie diagram combines a fault tree and an event tree to represent the risk control parameters on a common platform for mitigating an accident. Quantitative analysis of a bow-tie isExpand

Determination of human error probabilities for offshore platform musters
The focus of this work is on prediction of human error probabilities during the process of emergency musters on offshore oil and gas production platforms. Due to a lack of human error databases, andExpand

Fault and event tree analyses for process systems risk analysis: uncertainty handling formulations.
Quantitative risk analysis (QRA) is a systematic approach for evaluating likelihood, consequences, and risk of adverse events. QRA based on event (ETA) and fault tree analyses (FTA) employs two basicExpand

Dynamic risk analysis using bow-tie approach
We use bow-tie model to represent the accident scenario in a dynamic environment in which the occurrence probability of accident consequences changes. Expand

Solid inertants and their use in dust explosion prevention and mitigation
This paper is a review of the use of inert dusts to reduce the risk of dust explosions through both prevention and mitigation schemes. The review is conducted by referring primarily to the researchExpand

SHIPP methodology: Predictive accident modeling approach. Part I: Methodology and model description
Abstract Many process accidents are controlled and mitigated before they escalate to major events. Unfortunately some do go on to produce catastrophic consequences. As the size and complexity ofExpand
