Analyzing Relationships Between Aircraft Accidents and Incidents

Air transportation systems are designed to ensure that aircraft accidents are rare events. To minimize these accidents, factors causing or contributing to accidents must be understood and prevented. Previous research has studied accident data to determine these factors. The low rate of accidents however, makes it difficult to discover repeating patterns of these factors. In this research we employed a data mining technique to conduct a holistic analysis of aircraft incident data in relation to the accident data. The analysis identifies relationships between the accident and incident data and finds patterns of causal and contributory factors which are significantly associated with aircraft accidents.

Battery Room Explosion

A hydrogen explosion occurred in an Uninterruptible Power Source (UPS) battery room. The explosion blew a 400 ft2 hole in the roof, collapsed numerous walls and ceilings throughout the building, and significantly damaged a large portion of the 50,000 ft2 building. Fortunately, the computer/data center was vacant at the time and there were no injuries. Read more about the explosion over at hydrogen tools here .
