Damage Assessment for System Safety
Sophisticated mathematical models and methods have been developed to estimate the level of impact of a hazardous condition. This course is intended to provide an overall understanding of these methods to help managers and system safety analysis reviewers understand the analysis conducted and results obtained by the experts in the field. Specifically methods for modeling the impact of fire and explosion, debris distribution from an explosion, and toxic gas dispersion are discussed.
- Fire and explosion phenomena and modeling
- TNT Equivalents
- Debris field caused by a vessel explosion or missile explosion in the air
- Hazardous material (liquid) spill and evaporation
- Toxic gas dispersion
- Expected casualty computation for space and missile applications
Prerequisite: Attendees should have an engineering or hard science background.
