Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Architecture based within the Faculty of Engineering.

Research activity at Architecture explores a wide variety of significant research areas within architecture and the built environment. Among these is the better exploitation of innovative construction technologies and ICT to optimise 'total building performance', as well as reduce waste and environmental impact. Sustainable architectural and urban design is an important component of this. To this end, the Cluster for Research in Design and Sustainability (CRiDS) focuses its research energies towards developing resilient responses to the social, environmental and economic challenges associated with urbanism and cities, in both the developed and developing world.

Abstract

The objective of this study is to implement the principles of Resilience Engineering (RE) for the maintenance management of Offshore Wind Turbine (OWT) systems by taking into account human and organizational factors. Resilience concepts are integrated into existing maintenance management elements and a resilient model is developed and applied to OWT in order to manage the maintenance related risks. The four main capabilities proposed by RE, i.e. responding, monitoring, anticipating and learning, are linked to a three level resilience system in order to prevent or mitigate OWT maintenance failures. The paper presents the applicability and effectiveness of RE in preventing accidents/incidents and system failures, and learning activities.
