Domino Effects in the Process Industries : Modelling, Prevention and Managing Hardback
Domino Effects in the Process Industries discusses state-of-the-art theories, conceptual models, insights and practical issues surrounding large-scale knock-on accidents-so-called domino effects-in the chemical and process industries.
The book treats such extremely low-frequency phenomena from a technological perspective, studying possible causes and introducing several approaches to assess and control the risks of these scenarios.
The authors also examine these events from a managerial viewpoint, discussing single and multi-plant management insights and requirements to take pro-active measures to prevent such events.
Academics, regulators, and industrialists who study and analyze domino effects in order to prevent such events will find the book unique and highly valuable.
