  3. 3. Integrated and Probabilistic Risk Analysis of Drinking Water Systems

    Detta är en avhandling från Göteborg : Univ., Department of Economics, School of Business, Economics and Law

    Författare :Andreas Lindhe; [2008]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; water safety plan; customer minutes lost; probabilistic; fault tree analysis; risk analysis; risk; integrated; drinking water system; hazard; uncertainty;

    Sammanfattning : Drinking water supply is an essential public function but is at the same time exposed to risks. Since a totally risk-free society is not attainable, risks need to be managed efficiently to achieve an acceptable level of risk. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Adherence to drug treatment and interpretation of treatment effects

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis
