SAFETY IN AEREONAUTICS
The scope of the "Safety in Aeronautic Operations" class is to introduce students to the risk assessment of any activity and operation in the aeronautic field.
Flight Mechanics, Aviation Regulations And Human Factor
- Systemic safety analysis:
- System and Safety Concepts
- Outline of Statistical Methods
- Risk quantification methods
- Event Trees and Failure Trees
- Functional Safety
- Comprehensive methodology for prospective risk assessment
- Human factors in the safety analysis:
- Human factors in modern technology
- Definition and characteristic elements of man-machine systems
- Models and simulations of human behavior
- Methods for retrospective analyzes:
- Introduction to the retrospective analysis of occurrences and accidents
- Guidelines for the application of methods for retrospective analyzes
- Methods for the classification and research of primary causes
- Safety Management System:
- Operational approaches
- SMS security analysis
- Aviation Regulations
- Introduction to simulation in the statistical field:
- Montecarlo method
- Probabilistic risk assessment.
- Application of safety criteria to be adopted in an organization in order to respond to regulatory requests.
- Safety Mangement System.
