High-voltage circuit breakers protect and control the electrical power grid, making their reliability of the essence. Robustly assessing the technical `health' of every circuit breaker in operation is key for an optimal maintenance strategy and safety measures, but is traditionally not performed in a data-driven, statistical fashion. The goal is...

As the shallow mineral resources are nearly depleted, the mining of deep resources has become an urgent problem to be studied. The increase in mine depth can lead to the increase of mine heat hazard, which is a critical concern for mining safety/occupational health and safety. However, there are limited review articles available regarding the...

At CERN, radiation surveys of equipment and beam lines are important for safety and analysis throughout the accelerator complex. Radiation measurements are highly dependent on the distance between the sensor and the radiation source. If this distance can be accurately established, the measurements can be used to better understand the...

The severe effects of extreme wildfire events in recent years have shown that the fire suppression approach is not enough to solve the problem. An alternative to dealing with this issue is to accept the impossibility of eliminating wildfire hazards and focus on preparing systems to be more resilient. However, existing decision-making tools...

It is essential to use alternative fuels if we are to reach the emission reduction targets set by the IMO. Hydrogen carriers are classified as zero-emission, while having a higher energy density (including packing factor) than pure hydrogen. They are often considered as safe alternative fuels. The exact definition of what safety entails is often...
