The course aims to give students an in-depth treatment of the critical technical aspects of loss of containment including factors leading to loss of containment and consequence modelling.

of fires and explosions is covered with basic models describing their
characteristics. Thermal radiation is
reviewed and modelled. Source and
dispersion models for single and multi-phase systems are presented. Models for low temperatures generated on
blowdown/expansion are presented. Fluid
flow in networks is analysed focussing on fire water systems and flare/blowdown
networks. Toxicity & dispersion are
reviewed and extended.
containment statistics are reviewed with critical plant and equipment. Industry codes and standards are
reviewed. The key area of HP/LP
interfaces is covered. Gas blowby
examples and case studies are presented.
Identification and quantification of loss of containment scenarios are
presented and analysed.
2x Online open book exam (40% each)
