Emergency response is a procedural safety barrier of paramount importance for the mitigation of fire scenarios and the prevention of escalation. However, in Natech scenarios, emergency response may be affected by the natural event impacting the site. Indeed, when contrasting Natech accidents, emergency responders have to face both the natural...

Around the world, an increasing amount of bridge infrastructure is ageing. The resources involved in the reassessment of existing assets often exceed available resources and many bridges lack a minimum structural assessment. Therefore, there is a need for comprehensive and quantitative approaches to assess all the assets in the bridge network to...

The pair-copula Bayesian network (PCBN) is a Bayesian network (BN) where the conditional probability functions are modeled using pair-copula constructions. By assigning bivariate conditional copulas to the arcs of the BN, one finds a proper joint density which can flexibly model all kinds of dependence structures. It is a known problem that the...

As the Western European building stock ages, attention is increasingly allocated to the maintenance of building components, particularly mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) systems. Although the latter are essential in ensuring the correct operation of a building and the safety of its occupants, they remain the crafts where the most...

Effective large-scale process optimization in manufacturing industries requires close cooperation between different parties of human experts who encode their knowledge of related domains as Bayesian network models. For example, parties in the steel industry must collaboratively use their Bayesian networks on process parameters at the maker,...

The political interest in fish habitat suitability and, consequently, of fish populations has increased. The fish habitat suitability is a key factor for successful ecological restoration, for example via dam removal and implementation of fish passage. Furthermore, the fish population composition determines the ecological quality of water bodies...

At crime scenes, various methods can be used to determine how much time has passed since the act happened, for example a body left at the scene, camera footage or eye witnesses. In this thesis, however, a different method shall be used to determine the time of the crime. The time will be determined using blood evidence. <br/><br/>To be exact,...

In many fields we are interested in inference for a complex stochastic process given limited observations regarding its state over time. This thesis therefore introduces an expectation propagation approach to backward filtering forward guiding for high-dimensional finite-state space models. The backward filtering forward guiding method is first...

In this paper we discuss PyBanshee, which is a Python-based open-source implementation of the MATLAB toolbox BANSHEE. PyBanshee constitutes the first fully open-source package to quantify, visualize and validate Non-Parametric Bayesian Networks (NPBNs). The architecture of PyBanshee is heavily based on its MATLAB predecessor. It presents the...

In recent years, the interest in riding in cities using the two-wheeler (e.g., bicycles, electric bicycles, electric mopeds, etc.) increases. Mixed-traffic road segments are one of the most common traffic scenes where the mixed two-wheeler flows exist. Because the movements are often not restricted by lanes, the two-wheeler uses lateral road...

Purpose: Nature-based tourism (NBT) blossoming requires sound monitoring models to maximize its potential in the tourism industry. Cooperation of different segments from nature to economy will lead to a sustainable NBT. Therefore, the qualitative and quantitative relation between these subdivisions has to be investigated. Design/methodology...

Offshore Oil&amp;Gas facilities are attractive targets of intentional malicious attacks (security attacks) that may trigger cascading events (e.g., the release and dispersion of hazardous material and/or energy, fires, explosions) with consequences on people, environment, and assets. The severity of these consequences is potentially similar to...

Natural gas pipeline construction is developing rapidly worldwide to meet the needs of international and domestic energy transportation. Meanwhile, leakage accidents occur to natural gas pipelines frequently due to mechanical failure, personal operation errors, etc., and induce huge economic property loss, environmental damages, and even...

In the context of modern engineering, environmental, and societal concerns, there is an increasing demand for methods able to identify rational management strategies for civil engineering systems, minimizing structural failure risks while optimally planning inspection and maintenance (I&amp;M) processes. Most available methods simplify the I...

Both intentional attacks and accidental technical failures can lead to abnormal behaviour in components of industrial control systems. In our previous work, we developed a framework for constructing Bayesian Network (BN) models to enable operators to distinguish between those two classes, including knowledge elicitation to construct the directed...

RBI, referring to a risk-based approach to inspection planning, is an established pipeline integrity management method. Both corrosion and dents are the primary threats to pipeline integrity. However, they are often treated separately in RBI without considering their interactions. This coupling may lead to a synergic effect on integrity...

Finite Element (FE) modeling often requires unavoidable simplifications or assumptions due to a lack of experimental data, modeling complexity, or non-affordable computational cost. One such simplification is modeling corrosion phenomena or material properties, which are usually assumed to be uniform throughout the structure. However, e.g.,...

An accurate estimation of wind and wave variables is key for coastal and offshore applications. Recently, copulas have gained popularity for modelling wind and waves multivariate dependence, since accounting for the hydrodynamic relationships between them is needed to ensure reliable estimations of the required design values. In this study,...

The interactions of external disruptions and technical-human-organizational factors in emergency operations are usually observed. Resilience assessment of emergency systems can improve emergency response capability and system functional recovery. The increasing complexity and coupling of factors in emergency response systems need to be...
