    • Analysis of crater formation in buried NG pipelines: A survey based on past accidents and evaluation of domino effect 

      Ramírez Camacho, Jaime Giovanni; Pastor Ferrer, Elsa; Amaya Gómez, Rafael; Mata Miquel, Cristian; Muñoz Giraldo, Felipe; Casal Fàbrega, Joaquim (2019-03-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      The formation of a crater by the abrupt and catastrophic rupture of a high-pressure pipeline can be highly relevant, especially when the crater uncovers other pipelines, which could undergo a domino effect with a significant ...
    • Analysis of domino effect in pipelines 

      Ramírez Camacho, Jaime Giovanni; Pastor Ferrer, Elsa; Casal Fàbrega, Joaquim; Amaya Gomez, Rafael; Muñoz Giraldo, Felipe (2015-11-15)
      Article
      Open Access
      Parallel pipelines are frequently installed over long distances, due to the difficulty in creating or maintaining the required corridor. This implies that a release in one pipeline can seriously affect another one. The ...
    • Assessing the consequences of pipeline accidents to support land-use planning 

      Ramírez Camacho, Jaime Giovanni; Carbone, Federica; Pastor, Elsa; Bubbico, Roberto; Casal, Joaquim (2016-01-22)
      Article
      Open Access
      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, ...
    • Conditional probabilities of post-release events for hazardous materials pipelines 

      Bubbico, Roberto; Carbone, F; Ramírez Camacho, Jaime Giovanni; Pastor Ferrer, Elsa; Casal Fàbrega, Joaquim (2016-11-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      Pipelines are commonly considered a safe alternative for the transportation of hazardous materials. However, in case of failure, pipelines still pose major risks to the environment and to the population potentially exposed. ...
    • Contribución al análisis de riesgos en el transporte de materiales peligrosos por tubería 

      Ramírez Camacho, Jaime Giovanni (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2017-12-15)
      Doctoral thesis
      Open Access
      The highly complex and interconnected today's societies require a continuous flow of materials and energy from one geographical area to another. In particular, huge amounts of often-hazardous materials, mainly liquids or ...
    • Crater formation by the rupture of underground natural gas pipelines: a probabilistic-based model 

      Amaya Gómez, Rafael; Ramírez Camacho, Jaime Giovanni; Pastor Ferrer, Elsa; Casal Fàbrega, Joaquim; Muñoz Giraldo, Felipe (Elsevier, 2018-06-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      Parallel and crossing pipelines are frequently implemented due to land-use restrictions and their ease of operation and maintenance. Given the proximity of these pipelines and the hazardousness of the substances they ...
