Resilient engineered systems: the development of an inherent system property
(Texas A&M University, 2007-09-17)
Protecting modern engineered systems has become increasingly difficult due to their complexity and the difficulty of predicting potential failures. With the added threat of terrorism, the desire to design systems resilient ...
Measurement and prediction of aerosol formation for the safe utilization of industrial fluids
(Texas A&M University, 2004-09-30)
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 aerosol explosions. ...
The integration of Dow's Fire and Explosion Index into process design and optimization to achieve an inherently safer design
(Texas A&M University, 2006-10-30)
The integration of the safety parameter into process design and optimization is essential. However, there is no previous work in integrating the fire and explosion index (F&EI) into design and optimization. This research ...
Data driven process monitoring based on neural networks and classification trees
(Texas A&M University, 2005-11-01)
Process monitoring in the chemical and other process industries has been of great practical importance. Early detection of faults is critical in avoiding product quality deterioration, equipment damage, and personal injury. ...
Determining Bounds for a Pressure Hazard Rating to Augment the NFPA 704 Standard
Hazard communication is an essential part of a comprehensive safety plan, especially for those facilities that contain reactive chemicals. There are a variety of means of communicating a chemical hazard, but one of the ...
