2. The Assessment of Risk Caused by Fire and Explosion in Chemical Process Industry: A Domino Effect-Based Study

Farid Kadri, Eric Chatelet, Patrick Lallement
Pages: 66 - 76
In the field of risks analysis, the domino effect has been documented in technical literature since 1947. The accidents caused by the domino effect are the most destructive accidents related to industrial plants. Fire and explosion are among the most frequent primary accidents for a domino effect due...

3. Health Risks of Environmental Exposure to PCDD/Fs near a Hazardous Waste Incinerator in Catalonia, Spain

Montse Mari, Jordi Díaz-Ferrero, Marta Schuhmacher, Martí Nadal, José L. Domingo
Pages: 77 - 87
In order to evaluate the environmental impact of a hazardous waste incinerator (HWI) located in Constantí (Spain), during the period 2010-2012, 30 vegetation and soil samples were alternatively (herbage in 2010 and 2012, and soils in 2011) collected in the surroundings of the facility, and their contents...

4. On the Renewal Risk Model with Constant Interest Force

K.K. Thampi, M.J. Jacob
Pages: 88 - 94
In this paper, we consider a renewal risk model with constant interest force for an insurance portfolio. We discuss equations for the survival probability and its Laplace-Stieltjes transforms have been obtained. We provide recursive algorithm for the upper and lower bounds for the ruin/survival probability...

6. Decision-Making Model in the Environment of Complex Structure Data

Fusheng Yu, Shihu Liu
Pages: 103 - 109
For decision makers, the data property has a direct influence on the selection of decision making approaches and the reliability of decision results. Because of the complexity and diversity of practical decision data, some traditional decision approaches are not very good at reflecting the actual problem....

7. Research on Characteristics and Formation Mechanism of Landslide Disaster in Red Soil Hilly Region of South China

Qinghua Gong, Guangqing Huang, Junxiang Zhang
Pages: 110 - 114
The mechanism of landslide hazard in weathering crust of granites in south china was chosen as our research object. Landslides, as a common geo-hazard, can result in huge economic losses and enormous casualties in mountainous regions of the world. Therefore, the mechanism of landslide hazard has become...
