We analyze different types of fires and explosions. Causes and mechanisms are shown with calculations to predict the consequences and the impact on people and facilities.You will learn:Basic principles of how flammable and explosive products behaveAnalysis of major accidents that resulted in fires or explosionsDifferent types of fires and explosions including:Flash FireJet FirePool FireVCEBleveGain a thorough understanding of the principles and methodologies for calculating the consequences of each type of incidentUnderstanding effects models and the impact of incidents on people and facilities.Practical examples of prevention and mitigation measures in the event of fire and explosion incidents.Who should attend:Chemical Engineers, Mechanical Engineers, Process Engineers, Improvement Leaders, Design Engineers, Health and Safety Leaders, Process Safety Engineers, Operating and Maintenance Leaders.Instructor: Nestor SpositoCourse Outline:Introduction.
