Domino Effects in the Process Industries. Modelling, by Genserik Reniers, Valerio Cozzani

By Genserik Reniers, Valerio Cozzani

Domino results within the method Industries discusses state of the art theories, conceptual versions, insights and sensible matters surrounding large-scale knock-on accidents―so-called domino effects―in the chemical and method industries. The ebook treats such super low-frequency phenomena from a technological standpoint, learning attainable explanations and introducing numerous ways to evaluate and regulate the hazards of those situations. The authors additionally study those occasions from a managerial perspective, discussing unmarried and multi-plant administration insights and requisites to take pro-active measures to avoid such occasions. teachers, regulators, and industrialists who examine and study domino results so one can hinder such occasions will locate the publication particular and hugely valuable.

  • Outlines on hand tools in interpreting those occasions, supporting figuring out of the injuries and their causes
  • Covers present modelling, keep watch over and administration strategies of domino results, -facilitating prevention
  • Identifies components the place new learn is needed

Example text

Some insights of the methodology are given. 4 shows a polypropylene unit (PP) and a polyethylene unit (PE) in a petrochemical complex. Between the two units there is a grass root land. The problem was whether this land could be used in the future for a new PP taking into account the potentiality of a domino effect in case of a major accident. The old PP would be located 60 m away from the new unit, while the PE would be located 55 m away from the new unit. A major leak scenario in the existing PP unit was first analyzed.

Domino events characterized with cardinality 0 are the initiating domino events or the so-called “primary domino events”, whereas cardinality 1 refers to secondary domino events, cardinality 2 to tertiary domino events, etc. A multiplant domino effect represents an escalating accident involving more than one chemical plant. 5 Categorization of Domino Events (Reniers, 2010) Categorization of Domino Events Type Number Instances of Type Type 1 Internal External Type 2 Direct Indirect Type 3 Temporal Spatial Type 4 Serial Parallel Definition of Type Begin and end of the escalation vector characterizing the domino event are situated inside the boundaries of the same chemical plant.
