Standard-Based Lifecycle Risk Management of Explosion Events
- 226 Downloads
This chapter outlines the prevailing explosion risk management methods based on worldwide industrial standards. Wherein, a lifecycle risk management procedure for explosion accidents based on structural integrity management (SIM) is introduced. A quantitative risk assessment process including frequency analysis and consequence modelling is explained, and risk reduction methods including explosion risk reduction and structural strengthening are demonstrated.
