Consequence Assessments of a Cold BLEVE. Can We Do It Better?
Chemical Engineering Transactions
Presently in France the control authority (DREAL) in charge of the inspection of the Seveso installations requires the examination of the scenario "cold BLEVE" of very flammable liquid storages (flash point < 273K; vapour pressure > 105 Pa at 308K). The proposed case study reports the consequence analysis of a 4,800 m3 spherical isopentane storage tank. The potential cold BLEVE is characterized by a ground level cloud fire associated with a weak fireball tangential to the ground level.doi:10.3303/cet1648036 doaj:0ed16a9c91c94acea570813c0ec3e022 fatcat:qa3ver3z6bb5dh6ws5yracs2fi
