Proceedings of the 8th International Symposium on Risk, Economy and Safety, Failure Minimisation and Analysis, 3-7 March 2008, South Africa. Failures of one sort or another occur every day in the engineering/economic systems. These proceedings discuss the techniques of off-setting the failure through topics: Tools, Plant Life Evaluation, Planning and Risk, Materials, High Temperature and Case Studies. Editor R K Penny,
ISBN: 978 0 9552994 3 8, 1 vol.
