Bibliographic information Directoraat-Generaal van de Arbeid, Postbus 90804, 2509 LV Den Haag, Netherlands, 2nd ed., 1992. 386p. Illus. Bibl.ref.
Abstract Description of standard calculation procedures to be used for the evaluation of physical effects resulting from a release of hazardous substances (liquids and gases). Methods are described for the calculation of: evaporation; thermal radiation; dispersion; vapour cloud explosion; consequences of the rupture of vessels. Each chapter is accompanied by a detailed list of symbols and units. In annex: list of commonly used hazardous substances (26 gases and 27 liquids), together with their important physical constants (molecular weight, saturation pressure, heat of evaporation, etc.).
