The process layout of chemical plants is usually designed in a compact configuration for economic efficiency. However, n n most of the chemical process units are vulnerable to accidents such as fires and explosions, and these accidents can cause severe damage to humans. In this study, direct risks to humans from such hazards were quantitatively assessed as individual risk and converted into safety distances for each piece of process equipment. Then, a process layout optimization problem wasdoi:10.1016/j.procs.2013.09.201 fatcat:cd7cxk6ndza4vgj6xuti3dfebq
