About this book

This book describes principles, industry practices and evolutionary methodologies for advanced safety studies, which are helpful in effectively managing volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous (VUCA) environments within the framework of quantitative risk assessment and management and associated with the safety and resilience of structures and infrastructures with tolerance against various types of extreme conditions and accidents such as fires, explosions, collisions and grounding. It presents advanced computational models for characterizing structural actions and their effects in extreme and accidental conditions, which are highly nonlinear and non-Gaussian in association with multiple physical processes, multiple scales, and multiple criteria. Probabilistic scenario selection practices and applications are presented. Engineering practices for structural crashworthiness analysis in extreme conditions and accidents are described. Multidisciplinary approaches involving advanced computational models and large-scale physical model testing are emphasized. The book will be useful to students at a post-graduate level as well as researchers and practicing engineers.

About the authors

Dr. Jeom Kee Paik is Distinguished Professor of Marine Technology in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at University College London in the U.K. and Professor of Safety Design and Engineering in the Department of Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering at Pusan National University in South Korea. He is an honorary professor at University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, U.K., at University of Aberdeen, Aberdeen, U.K., and at Southern University of Science and Technology, Shenzhen, China. He serves as Director of the Korea Ship and Offshore Research Institute (International Centre for Advanced Safety Studies) which has been a Lloyd’s Register Foundation Research Centre of Excellence since 2008. He is Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Ships and Offshore Structures. Among other recognitions, Prof. Paik received both the William Froude Medal from the U.K. Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA, 2015) and the David W. Taylor Medal from the U.S. Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers (SNAME, 2013), the two most prestigious medals in the global maritime community, in recognition of his contributions to naval architecture and ocean engineering. He was conferred the Doctor Honoris Causa by the University of Liège in Belgium (2012) in recognition of his contributions to international science, engineering, and technology. Prof. Paik is a Chartered Engineer of the Engineering Council in the U.K. He is a Fellow and Publications Committee Member of RINA. He is a Life Fellow, Fellows Committee Member, Awards Committee Member, and Vice President of SNAME.
