Explosions in the process industries injure or kill hundreds, if not thousands, of workers every year. They occur
in process plants, refineries, platforms and pipelines all over the world. Millions of dollars are spent repairing
damages, replacing equipment and rebuilding facilities in the wake of this destruction. This book explores
different types of explosions that can occur in a facility and the necessary steps to guard against them. A clear
set of preventative measures, rules and standards combine to make this book a convenient guide to real-world
applications. Additional theoretical issues in the use of probabilistic equations and scenarios make this book
an absolute necessity for process industry safety.
