Physical effects consequence modelling
An overview of the three main steps for modelling physical effects
Location, location, location
In response to increasing client demands for facility layout studies at the conceptual design stage, Risktec has developed a Layout Assessment Tool.
Ship collision risk assessment – turning data into realism
Ship collisions can result in substantial damage to offshore assets and be a major contributor to the risks of personnel onboard. With the growing availability of historical ship location data, comes the ability to provide bespoke predictions of ship collision risk and target specific risk reduction measures.
Making the most of fire and gas detector mapping
Fixed fire and gas detection systems in processing facilities typically ensure that risk mitigation systems such as isolation, blowdown and active fire protection are activated in the event of a hazardous event.
Integrated use of CFD in QRA
CFD for design
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) studies are often performed to assess the dispersion of flammable or toxic releases, or overpressures resulting from explosions. Traditionally, the output of such studies is a report containing 2D and 3D graphical presentations of results, sometimes accompanied by short videos showing how the dispersion or overpressures develop over time. The results may also be combined with event frequencies to derive 'exceedence plots' which indicate the likelihood of overpressures exceeding certain magnitudes.
