A resilience engineering approach to safety excellence in the maintenance of oil and gas assets. (2016)
Thesis
AMEZIANE, S. 2016. A resilience engineering approach to safety excellence in the maintenance of oil and gas assets. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

The established approach to safety management has failed to handle socio-technical systems that have become more complex. The main argument is this approach is based on assumptions that systems are protected against accidents by barriers (well-traine...

Wind turbine maintenance optimisation: principles of quantitative maintenance optimisation. (2007)
Journal Article
ANDRAWUS, J.A., WATSON, J. and KISHK, M. 2007. Wind turbine maintenance optimisation: principles of quantitative maintenance optimisation. Wind engineering [online], 31(2), pages 101-110. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1260/030952407781494467

Maintenance optimisation is a crucial issue for industries that utilise physical assets due to its impact on costs, risks and performance. Current quantitative maintenance optimisation techniques include Modelling System Failures MSF (using monte-car...

The selection of a suitable maintenance strategy for wind turbines. (2006)
Journal Article
ANDRAWUS, J.A., WATSON, J., KISHK, M. and ADAM, A. 2006. The selection of a suitable maintenance strategy for wind turbines. Wind engineering [online], 30(6), pages 471-486. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1260/030952406779994141

Common maintenance strategies applied to wind turbines include Time-Based which involves carrying out maintenance tasks at predetermined regular-intervals and Failure-Based which entails using a wind turbine until it fails. However, the consequence o... Read More about The selection of a suitable maintenance strategy for wind turbines..
