When working in chemical plants, failures of equipment will result in releases of toxic, flammable and explosive materials.
This course introduces several source models to describe how materials are discharged from the process. Source models are an important part of the consequence modeling.
Chemical engineering students will explore basic source models and learn how to select models to estimate the rate of discharges, the total quantity discharged and the state of the discharge. In addition, this course takes consequence into the real world with the introduction of realistic and worst-case releases and conservative analysis.
Dr. Wang is the holder of Dale F. Janes Endowed Professorship, Associate Professor of Fire Protection & Safety Engineering, and Graduate Faculty of Chemical Engineering at Oklahoma State University. He will start his position as Associate Professor of Chemical Engineering in the Mary Kay O'Connor Process Safety Center at Texas A&M University in January 2019. He received his BS and MS degrees in Chemistry with Honors from Zhejiang University. He also received his PhD degree in Chemical Engineering from Texas A&M University with an emphasis in process safety engineering. He is a...Read more
Kay's Chemical Engineering career began at the Dow Chemical Company in 1990 in process engineering/production spearheading a new soil devolatilization technology.
She then focused in the Environmental group, namely in VOC/NOX Netting RCRA Subpart CC implementation and other RCRA regulations, as well as negotiations with EPA and the TECQ (Texas Commission on Environmental Quality). From environmental work she moved to process engineering in the designing/upgrading of facilities in Texas and Tarragona, Spain.
The remainder of her Dow career was spent in the Process Safety...Read more
