||Possible ways of mitigating explosions on offshore structures
||HMSO Books, P.O. Box 276, London SW8 5DT, United Kingdom, 1992. 52p. Illus. 37 ref. Price: GBP 10.00.
||This report is one of a series concerning blast loading on offshore structures. An overview of explosion mitigation is presented followed by a review of information on explosion relief, explosion suppressant systems, blast containment, blast deflection and module layout. Since no accurate methods are available for the assessment of techniques other than suppressant systems, it cannot confidently be predicted that specific applications will reduce explosion over-pressures to acceptable magnitudes. The complex interaction of suppressant with explosion flame is also poorly understood.
