520    An introduction to risk assessment that utilizes key 
       theory and state-of-the-art applications With its balanced
       coverage of theory and applications along with standards 
       and regulations, Risk Assessment: Theory, Methods, and 
       Applications serves as a comprehensive introduction to the
       topic. The book serves as a practical guide to current 
       risk analysis and risk assessment, emphasizing the 
       possibility of sudden, major accidents across various 
       areas of practice from machinery and manufacturing 
       processes to nuclear power plants and transportation 
       systems. The author applies a uniform framework to the 
       discussion of each method, setting forth clear objectives 
       and descriptions, while also shedding light on 
       applications, essential resources, and advantages and 
       disadvantages. Following an introduction that provides an 
       overview of risk assessment, the book is organized into 
       two sections that outline key theory, methods, and 
       applications. Introduction to Risk Assessment defines key 
       concepts and details the steps of a thorough risk 
       assessment along with the necessary quantitative risk 
       measures. Chapters outline the overall risk assessment 
       process, and a discussion of accident models and accident 
       causation offers readers new insights into how and why 
       accidents occur to help them make better assessments. Risk
       Assessment Methods and Applications carefully describes 
       the most relevant methods for risk assessment, including 
       preliminary hazard analysis, HAZOP, fault tree analysis, 
       and event tree analysis. Here, each method is accompanied 
       by a self-contained description as well as workflow 
       diagrams and worksheets that illustrate the use of 
       discussed techniques. Important problem areas in risk 
       assessment, such as barriers and barrier analysis, human 
       errors, and human reliability, are discussed along with 
       uncertainty and sensitivity analysis. Each chapter 
       concludes with a listing of resources for further study of
       the topic, and detailed appendices outline main results 
       from probability and statistics, related formulas, and a 
       listing of key terms used in risk assessment. A related 
       website features problems that allow readers to test their
       comprehension of the presented material and supplemental 
       slides to facilitate the learning process. Risk Assessment
       is an excellent book for courses on risk analysis and risk
       assessment at the upper-undergraduate and graduate levels.
       It also serves as a valuable reference for engineers, 
       researchers, consultants, and practitioners who ...
