Expert systems are designed to solve complex problems by reasoning through bodies of knowledge, represented mainly as if–then rules rather than through conventional procedural code.

The first expert systems were created in the s and then proliferated in the s. With over 20 years of experience investigating and testifying in cases involving a variety of forensic engineering issues, Dr.

Pfeifer is a leading expert in accident reconstruction, roadside safety, maintenance of traffic, and analysis of mechanical systems, and product failures.

Risk Assessment for Cladding Panels: An Expert Systems Approach. Risk assessment for structures in the context of wind engineering involves many factors such as wind hazard, the wind sensitivity of the structure and the socio-economic value of the structure.

Risk assessment for cladding elements located on tall buildings also includes consideration of the cladding properties and local boundary Author: D.

Reed. Safety Assessment The first and most important step after any fire is an assessment of building safety. Experts need to look for structural issues along with other dangers, such as asbestos or chemicals that could harm people reentering the building.

They also need to determine if anything in the building requires special disposal considerations. Because traditional risk management models do not fully incorporate empirical knowledge, most of these systems--developed based on mathematical models--ignore the creative component involved in managing risk.

EXPERT SYSTEMS PROCESS This book is organized in the structure of a strategic process for developing successful expert systems. Figure presents the hierarchy of topics as they are presented here and in the subsequent chapters. The strategic process is recommended for anyone venturing into the technology of expert systems.

true in development and enforcement of state and local building codes, and in other phases of managing general building processes. Risk analysis procedures may be applied at various levels of sophistication and detail to support effective risk management throughout a facility's life cycle, but their effectiveness often is limited by available data and the cost of data collection and analysis.

Safety and Reliability – Theory and Applications contains the contributions presented at the 27th European Safety and Reliability Conference (ESRELPortorož, Slovenia, June). The book covers a wide range of topics, including:• Accident and Incident modelling• Economic Analy.Performing a Dust Hazard Analysis (DHA) can give you peace of mind by fully evaluating the threat to your facility based on compliance with the intent of applicable national codes and standards.

More importantly, we can ensure that combustible dust hazards are appropriately identified with a plan in place to support mitigation.Introduction to Fall Protection is the text book taught at a university level and is recommended reading for Certification as a Certified Safety Professional by the BCSP.

It defines what a fall hazard is and how to recognize these hazards and introduces a matrix of protection choices.
