Title An approach to hazard analysis of LNG spills
Bibliographic information Feb. 1986, Vol.7, No.4, p.251-272. Illus. 34 ref.
Abstract A logical approach to hazard analysis is described and details of the features of analysis are outlined. Recommendations are given for the choice of a suitable gas dispersion model. Combustion and explosion are considered and limits of acceptability are discussed, including an evaluation of the adequacy of thermal radiation models from pool fires. Three methods for predicting radiant flux densities that would be received at the property line are examined and compared to data from the Canadian Standard Z276, which is similar to the NFPA 59A standard (USA).
