AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The aim of the course is providing the basic models and tools for RAMS (Reliability Availability Maintainability and Safety) analysis and risk assessment of passengers and freight transport modes, as well as the design of the relevant mitigation actions.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

At the end of the course the student has acquired the fundamental notions for the assessment of safety and security aspects in the context of transport systems through the application of different alternative methodologies.

Teaching methods

The course takes place in a classroom. During the lessons, the professor shows slides (which are made available to the students through Aulaweb, in general before the lesson) on the various topics of the course and, in some cases, he uses the blackboard to explain in detail sono specific contents.

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

  • Introduction to safety and security in transport systems
  • FN diagrams
  • Application of probability theory
  • Fault Tree Analysis (FTA) and Event Tree Analysis (ETA)
  • Petri net models and applications
  • Markov chain models and application

TEACHERS AND EXAM BOARD

Ricevimento: The professor receives by appointment (write an email to fix the appointment). The student consultations are carried out remotely or by appointment in presence, in compliance with the health prevention measures dictated by the rules in force at the time of reception.

EXAMS

Exam description

The exam consists of an oral test.

Assessment methods

The student's assessment is carried out through an oral test in which the student is asked to illustrate (on the blackboard) the theoretical topics of the course and to solve (on the blackboard) some exercises. The student must demonstrate that he/she has acquired a sufficient knowledge of the topics illustrated in class and that he/she is able to solve simple problems of modeling and analysis of transport systems from the safety and security points of view.

FURTHER INFORMATION

In order to correctly define the sequence of oral exams, it is mandatory to register for the exam at least 2 days in advance.
