  • Macias, Pete; Barton, Delilah (Mary Kay O'Connor Process Safety Center; Texas &M University. Libraries, 2001)
    When an abnormal situation occurs at your facility, management must be prepared, not only to handle the situation itself, but also to effectively communicate with stakeholders. The media is very important vehicle for this ...
  • Moderski, Mark; Mahalingam, Sankar; Eidson, Mark A. (Mary Kay O'Connor Process Safety Center; Texas &M University. Libraries, 1998)
    The hazards identified with a new or modified chemical or petroleum refining process can be mitigated in numerous ways. If a system cannot be designed so that it is inherently safe, then other safeguards such as instrumented ...
  • Levin, M. E.; Hill, A. D. (Mary Kay O'Connor Process Safety Center; Texas &M University. Libraries, 1999)
    The behavior of polymers and oligomers subjected to elevated temperatures in an air-free environment was recently studied to characterize the energetics of polymer/oligomer decomposition. This work, which focused exclusively ...
  • Levin, M. E.; Hill, A. D. (Mary Kay O'Connor Process Safety Center; Texas &M University. Libraries, 2000)
    Selected olefins, diolefins, and alkynes have been examined via adiabatic calorimetry to understand the behavior of these species as a function of temperature. APTAC (Automatic Pressure Tracking Adiabatic Calorimeter) and ...
  • Leverenz Jr, Fred; McEldowney, Kelli M. (Mary Kay O'Connor Process Safety Center; Texas &M University. Libraries, 2001)
    Determining Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) needs is the first step of a long process of complying and maintaining compliance with national and international standards. How a company goes about determining SIS needs can ...
  • Levin, M. E.; Hill, A. D. (Mary Kay O'Connor Process Safety Center; Texas &M University. Libraries, 2002)
    Samples of various iron oxides suspended above ethylene oxide in an adiabatic calorimeter exhibit exothermic activity at temperatures as low as room temperature. A 7-Fe203 sample was found to show the highest reactivity ...
  • Leggett, David (Mary Kay O'Connor Process Safety Center; Texas &M University. Libraries, 1999)
    Even though chemical process accidents do not have the same severity, they are usually reported without a (semi) quantitative indication of severity. Sometimes attempts are made to identify those accidents where significant ...
  • Cramer, John; Lay, James (Mary Kay O'Connor Process Safety Center; Texas &M University. Libraries, 2000)
    Dicyclopentadiene is a reactive monomer used in substantial volume as a key raw material by the unsaturated polyester resin industry. Although the chemistry was well understood from a technical perspective, the process ...
  • Krueger, J.; Smith, D. (Mary Kay O'Connor Process Safety Center; Texas &M University. Libraries, 2002)
    Offshore quantitative risk assessments (QRA) have historically been complex and costly. For large offshore design projects, the level of detail required for a detailed QRA is often not available until well into the detailed ...
  • Sukmarg, P.; Krishna, K.; Kihm, K; Rogers, W.J.; Mannan, M.S. (Mary Kay O'Connor Process Safety Center; Texas &M University. Libraries, 2000)
    Heat transfer fluids are widely used in the chemical process industry and are available in a wide range of properties. These fluids are flammable above their flash points and can cause explosions. Though the possibility ...
  • Alderman, John A.; Harding, Marlon (Mary Kay O'Connor Process Safety Center; Texas &M University. Libraries, 2000)
    Most companies have standards for fire protection on offshore installations. These standards typically are prescriptive in nature and require that fire protection be installed, generally, without regard to the actual hazard. ...

    The devastating consequences of aerosol/mist explosions have been widely documented, and there are currently efforts to understand the mechanisms of the formation and explosion of such aerosols. Heat transfer fluids are ...
  • Krishna, Kiran; Kim, T-K; Kihn, K.; Rogers, W.J.; Mannan, M.S. (Mary Kay O'Connor Process Safety Center; Texas &M University. Libraries, 2001)
    Mist or aerosol explosions present a serious hazard to process industries. Heat transfer fluids are widely used in the chemical process industry, are flammable above their flash points, and can cause explosions. Though the ...
  • Kossoy, Arcady; Benin, A. (Mary Kay O'Connor Process Safety Center; Texas &M University. Libraries, 2001)
    There is no other way to get original data regarding chemical reaction but experimental study. What kind of experimental technique to use depends on the aim of a study. Nevertheless, there is one almost universal method ...
