This course covers current regulatory requirements, including source term modeling (release rate, pool formation and evaporation, and aerosol formation methods); atmospheric dispersion modeling (meteorological concepts and passive and dense vapor cloud dispersion methods); fire modeling (pool fire, jet fire, boiling liquid expanding vapor explosion [BLEVE] fireball, and flash fire methods); explosion modeling (vessel rupture, BLEVE, vapor cloud explosion, and confined explosion methods); data and correlations for evaluating personnel injury and facility/equipment damage resulting from toxic exposure, fires, and explosions; public and commercial software available for performing consequence analyses; and risk analysis methods.
Who Should Attend This Course?
- Those who need a thorough understanding of consequence analysis techniques to comply with EPA's risk management program rule (40 CFR 68)
- Those who use consequence analysis techniques to evaluate accidents for documented safety analyses
- Those who use consequence analysis as an integral part of QRAs and SVAs
- Those who develop plant/community emergency response plans using consequence analysis techniques
- Participants should have the equivalent of a bachelor's degree in science, engineering, or mathematics (attendees should bring a scientific calculator to the course)
What Will I Learn in This Course?
- Gain a fundamental understanding of consequence analysis terminology, techniques, and software used in the industry
- Learn the assumptions and limitations of the various techniques (when to apply them and when not to)
- Understand and be equipped to use consequence analysis techniques in a variety of applications (SVAs, OCAs, QRAs, facility siting studies, emergency response planning, etc.)
