Reliability and Safety Studies

Welcome to the web pages of the ROSS Gemini Centre at NTNU and SINTEF. 

ROSS is an acronym for the Norwegian title "Risiko- og sårbarhetsstudier" that may be translated into "Reliability and Safety Studies". ROSS was established as a Gemini Centre in December 2007.


The ROSS web site contains a lot of information about:

  • RAMS and SHE research, including scientific books, articles, reports, and presentations held by the members of the Gemini Centre. RAMS is an acronym for "Reliability, Availability, Maintenance, and Safety" while SHE is an acronym for "Safety, Health, and Environment".
  • Study programs and courses, such as the RAMS International Master Program.
  • Information about the members of the Gemini Centre, links to their home pages, and contact information.
  • External resource pages, including links to RAMS and SHE-related scientific conferences, standards, and other universities.

The ROSS Gemini Centre is a collaboration between seven units at NTNU and SINTEF:

Electric Power Systems, RIPENSA, and Studio Apertura joined the Centre in January 2011. Several other departments at NTNU and SINTEF are associated to the ROSS Gemini Centre.
