Research program on Risk at the Process Industry

Responsible: Eulàlia Planas and Elsa Pastor

  • Industrial Major accidents modelling: Mathematical modelling and prediction of effects and consequences of fires (pool, jet and flash fires), explosions (semi-confined gas explosions, BLEVEs, vessels explosions) and flammable / toxic clouds.

  • Risk analysis: Development of new methodologies to identify and analyze technological risk (frequencies, probabilities) in process plants and in transport of dangerous goods.

  • Emergency management: Development of new hybrid methodologies, based on artificial intelligence, CFD simulations and real data for a dynamic management of emergencies
