Description

Evaluation of the Effects and Consequences of Major Accidents in Industrial Plants, Second Edition, covers the essential aspects of a diverse range of major accidents including fires, explosions and toxic clouds, and provides the key models necessary to calculate their effects and consequences with applications to real incidents. New topics in this up-to-date edition include dust explosions, evaluation of frequencies and probabilities, domino effect, transportation of hazardous materials, and analysis of significant accidents.
The new edition of Evaluation of the Effects and Consequences of Major Accidents in Industrial Plants is a valuable resource to engineers from the chemical/petrochemical industry and those working with the transportation of hazardous materials (by road, rail, or pipelines), in addition to engineering companies and academics alike.

Key Features

  • Evaluates the expected/probable occurrence frequency of major accidents
  • Describes the main features of fires, explosions and toxic releases
  • Includes mathematical modeling of major accidents, evaluation of their effects, and consequences on people and equipment
  • Explains how to perform a Quantitative Risk Analysis

Readership

Engineers from chemical/petrochemical industry, or working with the transportation of hazardous materials (by road, rail or pipelines), Safety engineers from industry, Engineering companies, Academic people from the departments of chemical engineering, energy and environmental technology; students from these fields
