Variability management in safety-critical systems design & dependability analysis (2019)
Journal Article
De Oliveira, A., Braga, R., Masiero, P., Parker, D., Papadopoulos, Y., Habli, I., & Kelly, T. (in press). Variability management in safety-critical systems design & dependability analysis. Journal of software : evolution and process,

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. However, the integration of safety analyses in the development process i... 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. doi: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

Infinite Virtual Stoa (2018)
Conference Proceeding

TIMAEUS is a digital art studio environment that enables creation of personalised 3-dimensional sculptures built with expanding spherical volumes or interconnected tetrahedra and possibly other atomic blocks in the future. These sculptures can be cus... Read More

Uncertainty-aware dynamic reliability analysis framework for complex systems (2018)
Journal Article
Kabir, S., Yazdi, M., Aizpurua, J. I., & Papadopoulos, Y. (2018). Uncertainty-aware dynamic reliability analysis framework for complex systems. IEEE access : practical innovations, open solutions, 6, doi:10.1109/ACCESS.2018.2843166. ISSN 2169-3536

Critical technological systems exhibit complex dynamic characteristics such as time-dependent behaviour, functional dependencies among events, sequencing and priority of causes that may alter the effects of failure. Dynamic fault trees (DFTs) have be... Read More

A review of applications of fuzzy sets to safety and reliability engineering (2018)
Journal Article
Kabir, S., & Papadopoulos, Y. (2018). A review of applications of fuzzy sets to safety and reliability engineering. International Journal of Approximate Reasoning, 100, (29-55). doi:10.1016/j.ijar.2018.05.005. ISSN 0888-613X

Safety and reliability are rigorously assessed during the design of dependable systems. Probabilistic risk assessment (PRA) processes are comprehensive, structured and logical methods widely used for this purpose. PRA approaches include, but not limi... Read More

Timaeus: A digital art studio inspired by antiquity (2018)
Journal Article

This project was motivated as an exploration of the capabilities provided by new digital media for creativity, art creation and art therapy. In the ancient Greek world, téchnē, the word for art, used to refer to both art and technology. The expressio... Read More

Model-based assessment of energy-efficiency, dependability, and cost-effectiveness of waste heat recovery systems onboard ship (2018)
Journal Article
Lampe, J., Rüde, E., Papadopoulos, Y., & Kabir, S. (2018). Model-based assessment of energy-efficiency, dependability, and cost-effectiveness of waste heat recovery systems onboard ship. Ocean engineering, 157, (234-250). doi:10.1016/j.oceaneng.2018.03.062. ISSN 0029-8018

Technological systems are not merely designed with a narrow function in mind. Good designs typically aim at reducing operational costs, e.g. through achieving high energy efficiency and improved dependability (i.e. reliability, availability and maint... Read More
