    Risk Analysis of the Fire and Explosion Accidents in Oil Tankers Ugurlu Ozkan 1, Basar Ersan 2, Kose Ercan 3 1 Maritime Transportation and Management Eng ineering Department, The Graduate. (source: Nielsen Book Data) Summary Written by an engineer for engineers, this book is both training manual and on-going reference, bringing together all the different facets of the complex processes that must be in place to minimize the risk to people, plant and the environment from fires, explosions, vapour releases and oil spills.

    effects and consequences analysis In this chapter, an attempt will be made to analyze and calculate the major hazards facing the industrial sector, with the aim of quantifying their consequences. The chapter consists of three large sections: fires, explosions and toxic gas : Marc J. Assael, Konstantinos E. Kakosimos. The book examines methods for the calculation of consequences from fires, explosions and toxic gases dispersion. Starting from the examination of the probability of a release, it proceeds to its.

    Fire protection engineering is the application of science and engineering principles to protect people and their environments from the destructive effects of fire. These services specifically address fire dynamics and propagation, burning behavior of materials, and performance of fire protection equipment after an incident has occurred. As the definitive reference on fire protection engineering, this book provides thorough treatment of the current best practices in fire protection engineering and performance-based fire safety. Over eminent fire engineers and researchers contributed chapters to the book, representing universities and professional organizations around the world.
