A Hybrid Expert System, GIS and Simulation Modeling for Environmental and Technological Risk Management

K. Fedra and L. Winkelbauer

Based on the results from the international research project HITERM funded under the European ESPRIT technology programme for high-performance computing and networking (HPCN) for decision support, this paper presents RTXPS, the integration of a real-time forward chaining expert system and a backward chaining system as the DSS framework using simulation models and GIS for environmental and technological risk assessment and management. Application examples describe chemical emergency management cases for fixed installations and mobile sources (transportation accidents), based on ongoing case studies in Italy, Switzerland and Portugal.
