A Dynamic Model of Behavioral Accidents: The Behavioral Accident Simulator.
Paper in Tram Training Resources Applied to Mining Proceedings 1986 :73-74
Dynamic modeling is a mathematical way of representing behavioral accidents. In a behavioral accident, individual perceptions, attitudes, and reactions to external stimuli are the primary cause. Based on a mathematical catastrophe theory, a dynamic model of behavioral accidents has been developed. This model, the behavioral accident simulator (bas), can be used to simulate various scenarios and experiment with alternative methods for preventing behavioral accidents. This paper is a progress report on the bas.
