Transport Safety Management and Accident Investigation

The Transport Safety Management and Accident Investigation program addresses the following main areas of research:

Safety Management Systems

  • Risk Management
  • Human Factors
  • Safety assurance
  • Safety training

Incident and Accident Investigation

  • Forensic investigation on structures, components and systems
  • Deterministic and probabilistic Root Cause Analysis (RCA)
  • Fractography, FEM/FEA analysis, mechanical testing
  • Numerical simulations of failed components
  • Methods for improving incident reporting systems
  • Simulation and virtual reality

Transport Safety Management (TSM)

Identify the concurrent effect of key factors influencing the effectiveness of reporting systems in aviation organizations:

  • Quantitative analysis of organisational, working environment and individual factors in the performance of a safety reporting systems
  • Model based on the multivariate method using Partial Least Squares Structural Equation Modelling (PLS-SEM)

Impact of the biometric and anthropometric characteristics of passengers on aircraft safety and performance:

  • Analyse the anthropometric attributes of passengers to determine the potential impact of evolving anthropometric characteristics (e.g., standard weight and height)
  • Holistic approach: aircraft safety, performance, emergency egress, crashworthiness and ergonomics
