  5. Relief Systems Design: Simplifying Assumptions Gone Wrong

    ChemE On Demand Presentation (AIChE Spring Meeting and Global Congress on Process Safety, 2014)

    The process of evaluating an entire facility’s relief and flare systems design can be extremely time consuming and costly. In most cases, simplifying assumptions or generalities are utilized in order to make this process less painful. Unfortunately, doing this can result in even more costly or...

  6. Equations for Flammability Parameters, Pmax and KG

    ChemE On Demand Presentation (AIChE Spring Meeting and Global Congress on Process Safety, 2014)

    The maximum pressure of gas combustion, P max , and the deflagration index, K G ,are very important flammability parameters that are used for risk assessment and relief vent design. It is difficult to predict the P max and K G theoretically because of the complicated mechanism of combustion. A very...

  7. A Leader's Tactical Approach to Influence Changes in Process Safety Culture

    ChemE On Demand Presentation (AIChE Spring Meeting and Global Congress on Process Safety, 2014)

    Following the Texas City disaster and the subsequent publishing of “Failure to Learn”, many companies were awakened to the idea that their top leaders played a much more defining role in the success of their organization’s integrated process safety program. Once an organization recognizes that a...

  8. Impact of DDT on FPSO Explosion Risk Assessment

    ChemE On Demand Presentation (AIChE Spring Meeting and Global Congress on Process Safety, 2014)

    In recent explosion accidents on onshore petrochemical facilities, it has been concluded that a deflagration-to-detonation-transition (DDT) took place, both with LPG and gasoline vapor. DDT has also been observed in a number of large-scale experiments e.g. at DNV GL test site Spadeadam with...

    ChemE On Demand Presentation (AIChE Spring Meeting and Global Congress on Process Safety, 2014)

    Recognized and Generally Accepted Good Engineering Practice or RAGAGEP is a fundamental building block of OSHA's PSM standard. OSHA has announced that it intends to publish a Request for Information (RFI) regarding it's Process Safety Management (PSM) standard. This paper will analyze the responses...
