If your process and storage vessels were exposed to fire, what is the likelihood they would fail? Learn failure assessment best practices in this webinar series.      

Join this webinar series to identify best practices for assessing the failure potential of pressure and storage vessels exposed to external fire. You’ll also explore mitigation considerations, including pressure relief and de-pressuring systems, water sprays and fire proof insulation. In Fire Characterization, you’ll learn how to best characterize fire loading including flame temperature, fire flux and duration. In Failure Assessment, you’ll review the fire loading established in Fire Characterization. In addition, you’ll examine methods for determining the failure potential and expected time to failure of vessels exposed to fire loading.
