Abstract/Description:
Emulation of safety control systems is a form of computerized design validation completed during the design or fabrication stage of an engineering project. Emulation, a method of validating a system between the typical cases of computer simulation and experimental testing, provides a means to test physical systems while removing the limitation of the requirement for physical equipment. The use of emulation could mitigate the unique risks of theme park attractions in engineering design and business operation. This thesis considers the unique risks associated with the engineering of safety-related control systems for theme park attractions and rides, and how emulation and the computerization of testing can change the industry.
