Handbook of Fire and Explosion Protection Engineering Principles: for Oil, Gas, Chemical and Related Facilities is a general engineering handbook that provides an overview for understanding problems of fire and explosion at oil, gas, and chemical facilities. This handbook offers information about current safety management practices and technical engineering improvements. It also provides practical knowledge about the effects of hydrocarbon fires and explosions and their prevention, mitigation principals, and methodologies. This handbook offers an overview of oil and gas facilities, and it presents insights into the philosophy of protection principles. Properties of hydrocarbons, as well as the characteristics of its releases, fires and explosions, are also provided in this handbook. The book includes chapters about fire- and explosion-resistant systems, fire- and gas-detection systems, alarm systems, and methods of fire suppression. The handbook ends with a discussion about human factors and ergonomic considerations, including human attitude, field devices, noise control, panic, and security. People involved with fire and explosion prevention, such as engineers and designers, will find this book invaluable. * A unique practical guide to preventing fires and explosions at oil and gas facilities, based on the author's extensive experience in the industry* An essential reference tool for engineers, designers and others facing fire protection issues* Based on the latest NFPA standards and interpretationsReseña del editor:
The security and economic stability of many nations and multinational oil and chemical companies is highly dependent on the safe and uninterrupted operation of their oil, gas and chemical facilities. Fire and explosion incidents are among the most critical impacts than can occur to these operations. This book provides a reference guide for professionals involved with fire and explosion prevention and protection aspects of these critical facilities. The main objectives of this handbook are to provide a practical understanding of fire and explosion problems at oil, gas and chemical facilities and to act as a general reference for engineers, designers and others facing fire protection issues. This book focuses on terminology that is applied and used in fire protection profession. Therefore NFPA standards and interpretations are utilized as the primary guidelines for the definitions and explanations. * A unique practical guide to preventing fires and explosions at oil and gas facilities, based on the author's extensive experience in the industry. * An essential reference tool for engineers, designers and others facing fire protection issues. * The expanded second edition is based on the latest NFPA standards and interpretations.
