      Among the major accidents that can occur in process plants and in the transportation of hazardous materials, those involving fire are the most frequent ones. And one type of fire which has been the origin of severe accidents ...
    • Domino effect by jet fire impingement in pipelines 

      Foroughi, Vahid; Cavini, Alessia; Palacios Rosas, Adriana; Albo Selma, Kim; Agueda Costafreda, Alba; Pastor Ferrer, Elsa; Casal Fàbrega, Joaquim (2019-01-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      Jet fires are often considered to be a minor fire accident, as compared to pool or tank fires. However, if there is flames impingement on an equipment very high heat flux densities will be reached, which can originate its ...
    • Experimental and computational analysis of vertical jet fires of methane in normal and sub-atmospheric pressures 

      Rengel Darnaculleta, Francisco de Borja; Agueda Costafreda, Alba; Pastor Ferrer, Elsa; Casals Coll, Joaquin; Planas Cuchi, Eulàlia; Hu, Longhua; Palacios Rosas, Adriana (Elsevier, 2020-04-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      Accidental jet fires occurring in industrial facilities can involve severe consequences as they can trigger domino effect. The assessment of the flame-geometry descriptors of the jet can contribute to prevent flame impingement ...
    • Historical analysis of accidents in the Mexican chemical industry 

      Palacios Rosas, Adriana; Mata Miquel, Cristian; Barraza, C (2021-01-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      An analysis of accidents that occurred mainly in the chemical industry within the Mexican Republic throughout the last century was made. The country’s industrial growth has boosted its economic development, increasing the ...
    • Study of Jet Fires Geometry and Radiative Features 

      Palacios Rosas, Adriana (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2011-01-11)
      Doctoral thesis
      Open Access
      Entre els accidents greus que poden ocórrer a les instal·lacions industrials o durant el transport de substàncies perilloses, els dolls de foc presenten un especial interès. Tot i que tenen una distància relativament més ...
    • Thermal effects of a sonic jet fire impingement on a pipe 

      Foroughi, Vahid; Palacios Rosas, Adriana; Barraza, C; Agueda Costafreda, Alba; Mata Miquel, Cristian; Pastor Ferrer, Elsa; Casal Fàbrega, Joaquim (2021-07)

      Although the effects of jet fires are often limited to rather short distances, if their flames impinge on a pipe or a vessel collapse can occur in very short times. In such cases, the heat flux on the affected equipment ...
