Costa Concordia Error Chain Dissected

For anyone who has ever heard the theory of an error chain and has also heard of the disaster of the cruise ship Costa Concordia, the following paper from Capt. Antonio Di Lieto is most enlightening.  It is common knowledge that human error appears to be the ultimate cause of the grounding and capsizing of Costa Concordia near Giglio Island in the Mediterranean.  The precise analysis of the safeguards normally in place to prevent such a disaster and their subsequent breakdown is sure to be taught in classrooms for years to come.

Thank you to Capt. Di Lieto and the University of Tasmania for providing this excellent paper.
