  1. The Design and Evaluation of Physical Protection Systems

    Book

    Guides the reader through the entire process of security system design and integration, illustrating how the various physical and electronic elements work together to form a comprehensive system. A great resource both for the security professional and student alike, the book is arranged in three...

  2. Making EHS an Integral Part of Process Design

    Book

    This book presents an approach—termed MERITT (Maximizing EHS Returns by Integrating Tools and Talents)—for enhancing process development through better integration of environmental, health, and safety evaluations. It draws upon critical components of inherent safety, pollution prevention, green...

  3. RELEASE: A Model with Data to Predict Aerosol Rainout in Accidental Releases

    Book

    This book documents CCPS's Aerosol Research Program to develop a model to predict liquid rainout from release of a pressurized, liquefied gas--and, hence the residual amount of material in a vapor cloud, which may be greater than the amount calculated from an enthalpy chart. RELEASE predicts the...

  4. Understanding Atmospheric Dispersion of Accidental Releases

    Book

    A brief introduction to a complex topic, giving a description of the processes involved in an accidental or emergency release and the resulting downwind transport and dilution of gases, vapors, and aerosols.

  5. Evaluating Process Safety in the Chemical Industry: A User's Guide to Quantitative Risk Analysis

    Book

    Quantitative Risk Analysis is a powerful tool used to help manage risk and improve safety. When used appropriately, it provides a rational basis for evaluating process safety and comparing alternative safety improvements. This guide, an update of an earlier American Chemistry Council (ACC)...

  6. Estimating the Flammable Mass of a Vapor Cloud

    Book

    This CCPS Concept book shows designers and operators of chemical facilities how to realistically estimate the flammable mass in a cloud of accidentally released material that is capable of igniting. It provides information on industry experience with flammable vapor clouds, basic concepts of fires...

  7. Guidelines for Vapor Release Mitigation

    Book

    Guidelines for Vapor Release Mitigation is a survey of current industrial practice for controlling accidental releases of hazardous vapors and preventing their escape from the source area.

  8. Wind Flow and Vapor Cloud Dispersion at Industrial and Urban Sites

    Book

    A key component of risk reduction is reducing the potential consequences that could result from toxic or flammable releases. The science of vapor cloud dispersion has advanced significantly in recent years, but one of the long-standing challenges has been in accounting for dispersion around...

  9. Electrostatic Ignitions of Fires and Explosions

    Book

    Tom Pratt, a long-time process safety practitioner and lecturer in electrostatic safety, wrote this book to educate industry in the basics of electrostatics. It offers a selected collection of information designed to give readers the tools they need to examine the hazard potential of common...

  10. Contractor and Client Relations to Assure Process Safety

    Book

    Written and edited by engineering contractors and industry project/maintenance managers as an easy-to-use guide for other industry professionals, this book identifies important process safety issues in the contractor-client relationship,which are not addressed by other groups and publications...
