A Science Mapping Review of Human and Organizational Factors in Structural Reliability

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceedings/Edited volumeConference contributionScientificpeer-review

Abstract

In the structural safety field, it is widely acknowledged that human error is the major contributor to structural failure. Since Human and Organizational Factors (HOFs) are critical latent conditions that can lead to human errors and further structural failures, it is essential to study into HOFs in the building industry to prevent the occurrence of failures. In this research, a bibliometric review of the existing literature on HOFs influencing structural reliability was conducted and results have been visualized in science maps. Insights into the publication output and trend, the key topics and its evolvement over time, the publication sources, as well as the contributing academics and their collaborations have been gained from the science mapping review. Apart from this, HOFs were collected from literature, after which a meta-analysis has been performed to identify the critical factors for structural reliability. In conclusion, this review provides a holistic picture of the current status for studies concerning HOFs influencing structural reliability and outlines the possible critical HOFs identified by existing research.
