    A Study on the Desirable Plan to Manage Disaster Management System of Gumi Industrial Complex - Focused on the Disaster Medical System Improvement of the Initial Reaction to the Accidental Release of Hydrogen Fluoride in Gumi -

    MIN YOUN KYOUNG | LEE DONG KYU | 2014, 10(2) | pp.1~21 | number of Cited : 6
    As the modern society is becoming advancement, man-made disaster is continuously increasing combined with a growing disaster dangerous facilities and caused an immeasurable loss of life and property in the area by the human's carelessness, indifference, mistake. Therefore, the local governments’s rapid initial maneuver is very important in order to minimize damage because of the most accessible form, and disaster medical system will require more efficient operation as an important element of disaster management system. Despite the legislating 「The Disaster And Safety Management Basic Act」in 2004, the accidental release of hydrogen fluoride in Gumi in september 2012 has exposed again vulnerabilities of safety and disaster medical system. Using system dynamics analysis, this paper finds the structural cause of the poor response in the initial stages, despite government efforts to improve safety. The result reveals that (ⅰ) the central government’s accessibility limit to disaster area, (ⅱ) the local government’s lack of skill and resources in order to respond disaster, (ⅲ) adequate disaster warning delay make local governments’s rapid initial maneuver harder. This paper has decided to investigate more creative ways of disaster medical system By analyzing and comparing institutional problem and several concerns raised by disaster area residents through the media.

    A Study on the Influential Factors for Effectiveness of Disaster And Safety Training and Exercise in Local Government

    박지환 | 김윤희 | 2014, 10(2) | pp.45~62 | number of Cited : 14
    Most disasters are generally developed from small accidents in local communities. The local communities fails to effectively response the accidents and then it becomes disasters. Thus improving disaster management capacity would be a long term measure to prevent disasters becoming in a bigger scale. There is no doubt that training and exercise, towards local government officials who are in charge of disaster and safety at local level, is a effective way of improving disaster management capacity but it is difficult to find researches analysed what are the influential factors for effectiveness of disaster and safety training and exercise. This article aims to draw the influential factors for effectiveness of disaster and safety training and exercise in local government. For that, influential factors for training and exercise will be drawn by literature review and this article analyses relations between influential factors and effectiveness of training and exercise by surveying local government officials who are in charge of disaster and safety management. Then based on the analysed result, this article suggest policy implications for improving effectiveness of disaster and safety training and exercise.

    Analysis on Hydrologic Stability of Agricultural Reservoir According to Estimation and Application of Probable Maximum Flood

    Maeng, Seung-jin | 김형산 | 정지혜 and 1other persons | 2014, 10(2) | pp.105~115 | number of Cited : 6
    The probable maximum precipitation(PMP) at Biryong reservoir and Wonnam reservoir, both selected as the target reservoirs, was recalculated using the flood control system for the reservoir. The hydrological stability of the reservoirs was investigated by tracking the flood water level of the target reservoirs using the spillway discharge based on water level changed by the calculated PMP. Results of the investigation on the hydrological stability of the Biryong reservoir and Wonnam reservoir showed that the maximum water level did not overflow the full reservoir level in both reservoirs. However, hydrological stability could not be secured because the allowable height fell short by 1.2m and 1.5m, respectively. The analysis also found that structural measures such as spillway expansion or non-structural measures, like reservoir operating rules for the flood season, are needed to ensure the hydrological stability of the two reservoirs. The probable maximum flood(PMF) at the Biryong reservoir and Wonnam reservoir calculated by applying the change in reservoir design criteria exhibited a higher peak flood of about 150-285%, compared to the 200-year frequency probability flood calculated using the reservoir design standards of the past.

    A Study on Flood Impact upon the Downstream Area of A river by Dam Break

    김대희 | 장동우 | 박효선 and 1other persons | 2014, 10(2) | pp.117~132 | number of Cited : 2
    In these days, drought and flood occurs more frequently throughout the world due to an unusual exchange in the weather. As the localized torrential rainfall increases, the possibility of flood occurrence such as river flood, bank decay, reservoir destruction also increased due to worn out or impairment of the hydraulic structures caused by flood damage. Especially, there have been several historic localized torrential rainfall in Chullabuk-do and Chullanam-do, there is no enough research done about the risk of the A dam decay after its construction nor the flood-risk mapping of main A river. Therefore, in this research, postulated dam failure of A dam during maximum possible precipitation is proposed and investigated in order to calculate not only the peak flood for the continuous collapse time, but also the flooding hour, flooding type and flooded area extent that hourly influences B county, C county by using the MIKE FLOOD model. In analyzing the receptive capacity of the embankment in the main stream of the A River, except the mountainous region in its upstream, the receptive capacity of the embankment is higher than the planned flooding level and the existing embankment height, the embankment water level in the B region occurred up 8.80m in maximum, the embankment water level in the C region occurred up 2.27m in maximum. By using the flooding occurrence point, the maximum flooding depth, the flood graph of time and season, of the B and the C region to be caused by the breaking of the A river, the forecast and alarm and disaster prevention for the flood of the A river basin in the future should be planned.

    Chung, Yeong Jin | Jisun You | 방두석 | 2014, 10(2) | pp.133~155 | number of Cited : 0
    According to latest results by the National Emergency Management Agency(2007-2012), based on the National Fire Information System, it shows that oil fire is 2019 cases, accounting for 4.4% of all fire, causing casualties including 299 human lives and property damage estimated at 15,795,120 thousand won at an annual average, followed by 13.2% and 5.6% respectively. In this study, the cause and the process of oil fire accidents are investigated and measures for this accidents are proposed by classifying oil fire into oil tank fire, gas station·car fire, kitchen·stove fire and factory fire which are likely to break out and analyzing the examples of accidents. Compared to other fire Oil fire is rapidly expanding from the first and an explosion is a high risk to cause a large fire. Especially dealing with a large amount of oil in oil tank and plant showed a much more human and material damage. It is considered that these accidents are mostly caused by workers' neglecting of management, carelessness and static electricity or sparks by ignition. through safety education, we should make effort to prevent oil-caused conflagration by safety education enhancing people' awareness.

    The Study of Command Responsibility for Military Crisis Handling

    Cheol Ho Yang | 2014, 10(2) | pp.157~175 | number of Cited : 3
    This study is about Command Responsibility applied to commanders and chiefs in charge of handling various critical Military situations at wartime and peacetime. When the various critical situations occur such as Cheonan warship attack, Yeonpyeongdo attack, GP massacre, and the civilian fence crossing to North, the commanders and chiefs related to the situations are punished based on the results of investigation; criminal penalty, being discharged, and so on. At that time, the commanders are asked “Command Responsibility”. However, a lot of commanders think that the Command Responsibility asked to them is applied differentially depending on the inclination of the commander and sometimes randomly applied. Thus, some commanders even think that they have a disadvantage. In this study, the case of Director of Operations of Joint Chiefs of Staff at the time of Cheonan warship attack, is analyzed based on the audit results from the Board of Audit and Inspection and Ministry of Defense, the precedents of Supreme Court, and regulations of Ministry of Defense and the Headquarter of the Army. This analysis will provide a better direction of Command Responsibility not only in future cases of Military events but also for Police and Fire department.

    Kim, Byung Sik | 장인기 | 민선홍 and 1other persons | 2014, 10(2) | pp.177~193 | number of Cited : 1
    This study forecasts extreme precipitation events and changes in drought using the projected precipitation and temperature data simulated under(RCPs) scenarios in the IPCC Fifth Report to estimate the impacts of future climate changes on extreme precipitation events and droughts in the Yeongsan and Seomjin River basins. The results obtained by using the generalized extreme-value(GEV) distribution showed that, for extreme precipitation, the variability is increasing between extreme precipitation events in intensity and amount over time and the upper tail of the PDF also grew thicker, suggesting that the occurrence of such events would also increase. For droughts, the SPEI results showed that the severity of droughts would increase more intense toward the end of the 21st century, as would the occurrence of droughts with a drought index of-1 or below.

    Applicability Evaluation of RCP Climate Change Scenarios in the Complex Coastal Regions

    박효선 | Choi Gye Woon | 2014, 10(2) | pp.215~230 | number of Cited : 1
    RCP scenarios which are the prediction of the greenhouse gas concentration were applied in the IPCC Fifth Assessment Report(AR5) followed by SRES scenarios of IPCC Fourth Assessment Report. This research evaluates the applicability of daily precipitation by new RCP scenarios from KMA. The last 40 years observed precipitation data from Incheon weather station and Ganghwa weather station are also analyzed. Afterwards, climate change scenarios' of predicted precipitation data were compared with the observed precipitation data. In order to examine the characteristics of summer precipitation change, we compared last 40 years observed precipitation data and the future 40 years data which is measured from 2011 to 2050yr. Observed and simulated precipitation data at Ganghwa weather station show a similar increasing trend. Simulation data of Incheon weather station show lower simulated results in comparison with the current observed data. Also, in order to consider short-term maximum rainfall characteristics, we analyze annual maximum daily precipitation of RCP scenarios. Some predicted values are higher than the current value of the annual total precipitation data. In addition, sea and land boundaries present a complicated topology, so it is difficult to build climate change data and to apply utilization of resources. Therefore, Solutions to the uncertain boundary were presented in this study. And there need to be done changes by modifying some elements in order to avoid some of the future consequences and apply them in various water-related business which are willing to suggest the correct information.

    Seong Joon Byeon | 이성호 | Choi Gye Woon and 1other persons | 2014, 10(2) | pp.247~264 | number of Cited : 2
    Recently frequent stream flooding and flood disaster due to abnormal climate led to an increased in damage to human life and properties. The most ideal measure is the precise prediction of flood water level. And in the prediction of flood water level, it is important to reduce potential flood damage via approaches from real-time aspect in order to secure sufficient lead time for evacuation and control of citizens and protection of facilities. The Osu Stream Basin which is the first branch of Seomjin River was selected as the subject, where the rainfall and water level data which was obtained by selecting 35 heavy rain events observed between 2006 and 2013 was used. The multiple linear regression models were structured and then parameters were selected from the following 4 methods: in Case 1, hourly data of water level and basin averaged precipitation; in Case 2, 10-minute periodic data of water level and basin averaged precipitaion; in Case 3, hourly data of water level and precipitation gauged 3 different stations and in Case 4, 10-minute periodic data of water level and precipitation gauged 3 different stations were used. According to the results, the precision was slightly reduced as the lead time of prediction, but the 1 hour of predicted lead time showed considerably higher precision, and the prediction results were superior until the 3 hours of predicted lead time. The simulation results showed that data that can be briefly identified may be used to predict the water level of the Osu point of the Osu Stream Basin in real time, and based on the results, the method will be helpful to protect lives and properties of those who live around the area and to reduce damage caused by flooding of the river via securing sufficient lead time for flood forecasting.

    In this paper, the ventilation characteristics of a filter basin of the purification plant were investigated for different windows size and the locations by numerical simulation. It has been found that the maximum concentration of chlorine gas in the filter basin with original windows was predicted about 0.13ppm. It means that an additional required amount of ventilation is needed to maintain good indoor air quality. For the filter basin with double sized windows and relocations, the maximum concentration of chlorine gas was predicted 0.11ppm. It is known that the window size and its locations in a filter basin of the purification plant are important factors to reduce the concentration of chlorine gas in the indoor.

    Nuclear Security Dynamics in South Asia: India and Pakistan Nuclearisation and Its Implications

    전광호 | 2014, 10(2) | pp.375~393 | number of Cited : 0
    Post-independence India and Pakistan have shared hostile relation with a number of wars and near-war situations. Through mutual hostility, war and war rhetoric have developed as their strategic cultures. India, the bigger power by many measures, and Pakistan, throughout their post-colonial-history(that extends to the present day) have faced a security dilemma, reinforcing each other’s threat perception. Besides an arms race and ‘alliance-counter alliance policy’, both have embarked on nuclear programs to maintain the regional balance of power. While the US-Soviet Cold War experience established that ‘nuclear weapon states do not fight with each other’, India and Pakistan fought the Kargil War in 1999 in the immediate aftermath of nuclear tests. Today’s security dilemma further increases as asymmetry develops through India’s steady economic rise and military modernization. Therefore, this paper explores the security environment of South Asia and suggests that there are some stabilizing effects to nuclear weapons yet the triggers of conflict remain.

    Lee, Jae Eun | Ahn, Ji-Young | 곽정은 and 2other persons | 2014, 10(2) | pp.395~411 | number of Cited : 0
    Recently, noroviruses are the leading cause of acute gastroenteritis worldwide and has a serious impact on people’s health. Consequently, preventive measures for foodborne disease caused by norovirus play an important role. This paper epidemiologically analyzed and compared five norovirus outbreak aspects of Korea and USA from 2009 to 2013. Five aspects are the major pathogen of foodborne disease, the peak season of outbreaks, the facility of outbreaks, the food commodity causing a disease, the genotype of norovirus. Then the food hygiene regulations and risk management policies of foodborne disease were compared. This paper expects to develop appropriate measures for damages depending on post-counteraction to fundamental domestic response system.
