||The estimation of probability of ignition is a key step in the assessment of risk for premises where flammable liquids or gases are stored. Currently, simple models tend to be used, which assume that ignition probability is a function only of release rate, or cloud size, and do not consider location, density or type of ignition source. Ignition sources on hazardous installation plants tend to be better controlled than off-site sources. However, these measures are mainly designed to prevent the ignition of small releases within defined hazardous areas. This report describes an ignition probability model that has been developed to consider larger, catastrophic, releases that may come into contact with on-site ignition sources within non-hazardous areas and buildings.
