Safety-critical systems are of paramount importance for many application domains, where safety properties are a key driver to engineer critical aspects and avoid system failures. For the benefits of large-scale reuse, software product lines (SPL) hav... Read More

Dynamic reliability assessment of flare systems by combining fault tree analysis and Bayesian networks (2019)
Journal Article
Kabir, S., Taleb-Berrouane, M., & Papadopoulos, Y. (in press). Dynamic reliability assessment of flare systems by combining fault tree analysis and Bayesian networks. Energy Sources, Part A,

Flaring is a combustion process commonly used in the oil and gas industry to dispose flammable waste gases. Flare flameout occurs when these gases escape unburnt from the flare tip causing the discharge of flammable and/or toxic vapor clouds. The tox... Read More

Applications of Bayesian networks and Petri nets in safety, reliability, and risk assessments: A review (2019)
Journal Article
Kabir, S., & Papadopoulos, Y. (2019). Applications of Bayesian networks and Petri nets in safety, reliability, and risk assessments: A review. Safety science, 115, 154-175. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ssci.2019.02.009

System safety, reliability and risk analysis are important tasks that are performed throughout the system life-cycle to ensure the dependability of safety-critical systems. Probabilistic risk assessment (PRA) approaches are comprehensive, structured... Read More
