            Safety Science Research: Evolution, Challenges and New Directions provides a unique perspective into the latest developments of safety science by putting together, for the first time, a new generation of authors with some of the pioneers of the field. Fourty years ago, research t...raditions were developed, including, among others, high-reliability organisation, cognitive system engineering or safety regulations. In a fast-changing world, the new generation introduces, in this book, new disciplinary insights, addresses contemporary empirical issues, develops new concepts and models while remaining critical of safety research practical ambitions. Their ideas are then reflected and discussed by some of the pioneers of safety science. Some figures in the eBook are in color. Features Allows the reader to discover how contemporary safety issues are currently framed by a new generation of researchers, brought together for the first time Includes an introduction and guide to the development of safety science over the last four decades Features an extraordinary collection of expert contributors, including pioneers of safety research, reflecting the evolution of the discipline and offering insightful commentary on the current and future state of the field Serves as an invaluable reference and guide for safety professionals and students from any established disciplines such as sociology, engineering, psychology, political science or management as well as dedicated safety programmes

            The Ninth International Symposium on Transportation and Traffic Theory, held in the Netherlands in July 1984, follows the tradition of broad international information exchange that was developed at the eight previous symposia. Over the years the scope of the symposia has graduall...y widened to become both more international and more comprehensive than that of the earlier meetings. The Ninth Symposium continues this trend by including papers on a wide range of theoretical issues by leading members of the international research community.

            Intelligent Infrastructure: Neural Networks, Wavelets, and Chaos Theory for Intelligent Transportation Systems and Smart Structures

            Intelligent Infrastructure: Neural Networks, Wavelets, and Chaos Theory for Intelligent Transportation Systems and Smart Structures (Paperback)

            Recent estimates hypothesize that the US will need $1.6 trillion dollars for the rehabilitation, replacement, and maintenance of existing infrastructure systems within the next 20 years. Presenting a new vision and way of designing and managing the civil infrastructure of the nat...ion, Intelligent Infrastructure: Neural Networks, Wavelets, and Chaos Theory for Intelligent Transportation Systems and Smart Structures presents the foundations of intelligent infrastructure. It presents novel technologies, methods, and detailed computational algorithms for creation of smart structures and intelligent freeways. This book crosses the two disciplines of structural engineering and transportation engineering and provides a unique treatise for attacking and solving some of the most complex and intractable problems encountered in the emerging fields of smart structures and intelligent transportation systems. It demonstrates how some of these problems can be solved effectively through ingenious integration of several different computing paradigms including chaos theory (based on nonlinear dynamics theory), wavelets (a signal processing method), and three complementary soft computing methods: fuzzy logic, neural networks, and genetic algorithms. Adeli and Jiang discuss multidisciplinary methodologies for health and monitoring and nonlinear active control of tall building structure subject to dynamic loading such as those due to winds or earthquake. Delineating an approach to infrastructure system engineering and management that is both modern and futuristic, the authors explore the advanced computing technologies that will play an important role in the creation of an effective smart structure technology.
