    Young Ho Eom | Sung Yeol Choi | Suk Jin Jang | 2016, 12(8) | pp.1~14 | number of Cited : 4
    A growing number of extraordinary climate instability and social malaises has results in frequent occurrence of various unpredictable disasters all over the world. In response to those, major developed countries have implemented “Business Continuity Management System (BCMS)” to provide the core businesses of companies and organizations in spite of disaster situations. Also, the BCMS-related industries have been developed by the trained manpower. The Korean government made laws and standards for a BCMS and operated policies supporting a BCMS, but is now facing limitation in professional manpower and BCSM-related industries. Therefore, this paper evaluated the dilemma and suggested the resolutions focusing on professional manpower as a basis of the BCMS-related industries.

    A Study of Counter-Terrorism Legislation in the US

    LEE, HOSOO | Jin Bae Sul | 2016, 12(8) | pp.15~32 | number of Cited : 5
    The purpose of this paper is to analyze counter-terrorism legislation in the US for the purpose of providing implications on the initiation of anti-terrorism act in Korea. The results of the analysis found the following characteristics of US counter-terrorism legislation. First, the government set up the national system for countering terrorism. Second, it expanded the concept of terrorism. Third, it strengthened the investigative powers pertaining to terrorist acts and national security. Fourth, it increased criminal penalties for terrorist. Fifth, it strengthened surveillance of terrorist funding. Sixth, it created a sharing mechanism for intelligence investigations of crimes. Seventh, it reinforced the protection of citizens and their privacy rights as well as transparency policies. As such, the US government has tried to strengthen national security as well as to protect the citizens' privacy rights through its counter-terrorism legislation. This shows that Korea, which recently enacted an anti-terrorism law, has much to consider regarding the question of how national security and human rights should be balanced.

    Improvement on Spill Risk of a Hazardous Chemical Transporting Vehicle

    신창현 | Park, Jai-hak | 2016, 12(8) | pp.33~45 | number of Cited : 3
    According to the recent chemical accident statistics, there were 72 cases of chemical accidents of transporting vehicles handling hazardous chemicals. 22 cases of them were massive spills due to a rollover. If large spills from the vehicles occur, accident response can be delayed and the damage can be much more serious than that of on-site accidents. So, it is necessary to take precautionary measures to reduce the damage. The Chemical Substances Control Act in 2015 requires all transporting vehicles to install partitions inside to prevent a massive spill of hazardous chemicals. It needs, however, many inlets to fill the compartments and the cap, which could increase the chance of crash inlets into the ground during rollover accidents. This study is dedicated to minimizing a risk of massive spills of the vehicles through devising an advanced system with the common inlet.

    The Wave Attenuation Effect of Artificial Reef on Coastal Erosion Prevention

    KIM KYOUNG HO | 오현식 | 2016, 12(8) | pp.47~53 | number of Cited : 0
    Coastal erosion should be recognized as one of considerable social problems as well as environmental concerns. The coastal structures such as jetties, breakwaters and submerged breakwaters (or artificial reef) have been utilized as a measure of beach erosion prevention. In fact, these structures reduce wave energy and protect beach erosion. A lot of submerged breakwaters have been recently constructed in the wave field in Korea. To investigate the effect of the coastal structures on reducing wave energy, we analyzed a correlation between wave transmission coefficient(K), Ursell number, wave steepness, and relative depth. Our experimental models confirm wave energy dissipation effects, showing that the wave attenuation rate of submerged breakwaters was 19.2% for the case of the 3 rows. Also, K could derive an empirical formula represented by the Ursell number.

    A Study on the Relationship among Stress, Sedentary Time and Depression for the Elderly - Focusing on the Moderation Effects of Sedentary Time -

    Song Hee Seung | 2016, 12(8) | pp.55~68 | number of Cited : 1
    This study examined how sedentary time moderates the influence of stress on depression in elderly. The sixth Korean National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (KNHANES V-2, 2014) were used and 1,263 samples were selected among the elderly population aged 65 years or more. A hierarchical regression analysis was performed using sedentary time as a moderator of the relationship between stress and depression. A significant difference in depression for elderly was found by sex (t= -7.60, p<.001), number of chronic disease (F=22.79, p<.001), average monthly income (t=4.45, p<.001), stress (t= -11.29, p<.001) and sedentary time/day (t= -3.29, p=.001). Also, it was found that sedentary time moderated the relationship between stress and depression in elderly. Based on these findings, diminishing sedentary time in stressed elderly is recommended to prevent depression.

    Social Capital and the Elderly’s Problems

    Kim SANG-WEON | 2016, 12(8) | pp.69~82 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    This research examined the association between social capital and aging problems in Korea, based on the recent sociological and public heath literature. It tested the hypothesis that old people with more positive perception of social capital in their residential areas have a less serious attitude toward the elderly’s problems. Using the nationwide survey data from 1,060 elderly people in Korea, the relationship between social capital and the elderly’s problems was estimated by the OLS (Ordinary Least Squares) regression models. The results found a significant relationship between social capital and the elderly’s problems. The findings indicated that old people with more positive perception of social capital in their residence had less serious attitude toward the elderly’s problems, which suggests the role of public policy of enhancing social capital in alleviating various aging problems.

    Validation of the Korean Suicide Intervention Response Inventory-2 Scale

    Jongeun Lee | Chang, Sun Ju | 2016, 12(8) | pp.105~119 | number of Cited : 1
    This study validated the Korean version of the Suicide Intervention Response Inventory-2 (K-SIRI-2) scale which has been developed to measure counselling skills handling suicidal crisis. We evaluated internal consistency, test-retest reliability, discriminant validity, and its construct validity of K-SIRI-2 using a forward-backward translation method. The data were collected from 127 nursing students in a nursing school. The coefficients of Cronbach’s alpha and test-retest reliability were measured as 0.84 and 0.98, respectively. Discriminant validity showed a significant difference between the 2nd and 4th grade nursing students. Construct validity was also confirmed because the mean K-SIRI-2 score was significantly improved after the intervention. The findings demonstrate that K-SIRI-2 is an appropriate instrument to measure the effectiveness of suicidal intervention programs.

    Thinning Effect on Fuel Load and Crown Fire Hazard

    Byung Doo Lee | yeongtae bae | Sung-Cheol Jung | 2016, 12(8) | pp.121~130 | number of Cited : 0
    This study analyzed the influence of a thinning operation on fire behavior, fire hazard and fuel load. Our research examined fuel load in surface, shrub, and crown layer by three degree of density (100, 200 and 300 trees per hectare) in both treated and untreated area. NEXUS 2.0, a system for assessing crown fire hazard into torching index and crowing index, and a BehavePlus program were used to analyze fire behavior. It was observed that, when the intensity of a thinning operation increased, the shrub fuel load also increased but the surface fuel and canopy fuel load decreased. Unlike a torching index with no big difference by thinning intensity, the more intensified a thinning operation became, the more reduced a crowning index was. The result of fire behavior analysis showed that the spreading rate was much faster and heat radiation was also very high in untreated sites. Not only fire intensity but flame length became weaken and shorten in uncontrolled area.

    A Study on the Debris Flow Movement and the Run-out Calculation Using the Coupling of Flood Runoff Model and Debris Flow Model

    Dong Ho Nam | Suk Ho Lee | Jun Kye Won and 1other persons | 2016, 12(8) | pp.131~143 | number of Cited : 4
    An increasing amount of damage results from debris flow in urban areas and mountainous regions covering most of the lands in Korea. It is believed that the analysis of the rainfall that gave rise to debris flow needs to be preceded in order to reduce damage from mudslide. The Spatial Runoff Assessment Tool (S-RAT) model, a distribution-type rainfall–runoff model, was adopted to analyze the rainfall causing debris flow. In order to estimate debris flow expansion, the couple modeling was performed using the Rapid Mass Move Simulation (RAMMS) model, a two-dimensional numerical analysis model for debris flow. In addition, for the correction of the aerial images on actual areas damaged by earth and sand, the optimal parameters were estimated by the NSI method, including sediment concentration (Cv), flow velocity (V), viscosity–friction coefficient (Mu), and turbulent friction factor (Xi), The result showed that the frequency of the actual rainfall causing the Umyeonsan landslide was more than 200 years, and the damaged area around the Raemian apartment was simulated as 65,430 m2,with the frequency of 200 years.
