  • Comparative analysis of BLEVE mechanical energy and overpressure modelling 

    Hemmatian, Behrouz; Planas Cuchi, Eulàlia; Casal Fàbrega, Joaquim (2017-02-01)
    Article
    Accés obert
    The mechanical effects of a BLEVE are overpressure and ejection of fragments. Although fragments reach much longer distances, peak overpressure can be very strong over a certain area. Diverse authors have proposed methodologies ...
  • Conditional probabilities of post-release events for hazardous materials pipelines

    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    With the rapid development of industry, the number of pipelines that are proposed or under construction is increasing year by year, connecting different regions of a country and, more and more, different countries. Thus, ...
  • Fire as a primary event of accident domino sequences: The case of BLEVE 

    Hemmatian, Behrouz; Planas Cuchi, Eulàlia; Casal Fàbrega, Joaquim (2015-07-01)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    The domino sequences found in major accidents have been analyzed for a large set of cases (330); the first event triggering the domino effect was an explosion or a fire, both with approximately the same contribution; the ...
  • Analysis of the boiling liquid expanding vapor explosion (BLEVE) of a liquefied natural gas road tanker: The Zarzalico accident 

    Planas Cuchi, Eulàlia; Pastor Ferrer, Elsa; Casal Fàbrega, Joaquim; Bonilla, J.M. (2015-03-01)
    Article
    Accés obert
    The road accident of a tanker transporting liquefied natural gas (LNG) originated a fire and, finally, the BLEVE of the tank. This accident has been analyzed, both from the point of view of the emergency management and the ...
  • Current status and trends of the environmental performance in European ports 

    Puig Duran, Martí; Wooldridge, Chris; Michail, Antonis; Darbra Roman, Rosa Maria (2015)
    Article
    Accés obert
    This paper investigates the current status and trends over time in the environmental performance of European ports. The research is based on the provision of data from 79 European ports on issues related to their environmental ...
