Essentially the most amazing and chronic methods people dominate Earth is by way of altering land-cover as we settle a zone. a lot of our ecological knowing approximately this procedure comes from reports of birds, but the prevailing literature is scattered, usually a long time previous, and infrequently synthesized or standardized.

Example text

The results of this case study may be discussed as follows: Hazard scenario A—Underpass: Fire of a tank truck: the safety intervention turned out to be clearly disproportionate and only complementary safety measures (like signaling reduced speed) may possibly be taken. This hazard scenario can be considered as an “accepted risk”. Hazard scenario B—Overpass: Loss of load bearing resistance due to corrosion: the coefficient of efficiency of the safety intervention was larger than 1 and the safety related intervention must in principle be implemented.

The assumptions and available information to estimate cost parameters are of outmost importance. The compensation costs for casualties turn out to be the predominant aspect. Information and data related to cost parameters need to be improved. 3. Evaluation of proportionality of safety interventions may not be based on numerical results alone. Sound engineering judgment and non-monetary values needs to accompany the evaluation. The results of this case study may be discussed as follows: Hazard scenario A—Underpass: Fire of a tank truck: the safety intervention turned out to be clearly disproportionate and only complementary safety measures (like signaling reduced speed) may possibly be taken.
