Natural Hazards in Chile: assessing risk perception and social trust
Identifying elements at risk from openstreetmap: the case of flooding
(The Pennsylvania State UniversityUniversity ParkPennsylvania, 2014-05-18)
The identification of elements at risk is an essential part in hazard risk assessment. Especially for recurring natural hazards like floods, an updated database with information about elements exposed to such hazards is ...
Hydrodynamic Modeling of Flash Floods in an Andean Stream: Challenges for Assessing Flood Hazards in Mountain Rivers
Raininduced flash floods are common events in regions close to the southern Andes, in north and central Chile. Rapid urban development combined to the changing climate and ENSO effects have resulted in an alarming ...
Specialist tool for monitoring the measurement degradation process of induction active energy meters
This paper presents a methodology and a specialist tool for failure probability analysis of induction type watt-hour meters, considering the main variables related to their measurement degradation processes. The database ...

Towards a fuzzy logic model for chemical risk assessment by inhalation in laboratories
(Proceedings of the 2015 IEEE 35th Central American and Panama Convention, CONCAPAN 2015, 2015)
This paper presents a computational Fuzzy Logic Model for chemical hazards risk assessment by inhalation in laboratories. Some influence factors on chemical risk are deterministic but not completely measurable. As a ...
