The aims of this module are to develop in the student:
1) Understanding and ability to evaluate safety and security issues in the transport sector
2) Ability to analyse and synthesis data from accident records and site data to resolve accident issues
3) Ability to evaluate rail network control from a safety perspective
4) Ability to analyse air transport processes to minimise safety and security issues
1) Health & safety regulations relating to transport
2) Road travel safety
• Legislative history and aggregate data comparisons
• Accident investigation and safety audit methodologies
• Statistical monitoring and economic appraisal
Traffic calming and control
Vehicle design for safety
Crash testing and methodologies
Road user training
3)Railway operation, signalling and control
Carriage design and crashworthiness
Safe network design
4)Aircraft and air passenger safety
Air traffic and ground control
Luggage & passenger control & security
Cabin structure & safety
A variety of academic and work based teaching and learning methods including: lectures, tutorials, site based work, workshops, videos, presentations, independent study, directed reading and industrial visits will be employed to develop the skills and knowledge of the student.
Study will be structured to provide a balance between the acquisition of knowledge and opportunities for the student to demonstrate their understanding of the subject.
Typical time allocation would be 40% lectures, 40% tutorials, 20% site work.
when you have successfully completed this module you will:
to demonstrate that you have achieved the learning outcome you will:
|1.||Ability to analyse a junction accident problem||Appropriately analyse accident data, site conditions, and synthesise to produce reasonable recommendations for remedial action|
|2.||Analysis and evaluation of accident issues||Accurately deploy statistical methods to appropriately monitor remedial measure impacts and perform appropriate economic evaluation|
|3.||Assess vehicle design parameters with relation to safety criteria.||Produce recommendations for design specifications to satisfy safety criteria|
|4.||Have the ability to study an existing transport infrastructure or facility.||Assess a case study and be able to analyse and constructively report on the system.|
Your achievement of the learning outcomes for this module will be tested as follows:
