Chap authored by Sidney A. Bernsen, Fredric A. Simonen, Kenneth R. Balkey, Raymond A. West and Ralph S. Hill III, traces the development of nuclear power plant probabilistic risk assessment (PRA) from its initial evolution as a means for evaluation of public safety through the recognition of its use to identify important safety concerns. This first application of PRA to a payload demonstrates a practical design approach that could achieve one order of magnitude improvement relative to the baseline design, a noteworthy risk reduction. Future work is required to substantiate the findings and refine the analysis commensurate with higher fidelity design : Todd Paulos, Alexis A. Flippen. Participatory Rural Appraisal (PRA) methods, now known as Participatory Learning and Action (PLA), have been extensively used in development research, action and evaluation. This book is based on the author’s decade-long intensive field experience―each method is explained by drawing on field-based by:

There are probability, uncertainty and variability in many fields, such as weather forecasting, political polls or climate change predictions. PRA can be used in each of these examples and others, at many levels or degrees of sophistication, to support or improve decisions in a variety of different decision contexts. 4 Force field analysis: applications in PRA Somesh Kumar • Introduction Force Field Analysis is a technique to visually identify and analyse forces affecting a problem situation so as to plan a positive change.
