Consequence modeling and risk analysis for safeguarding against jet fires

Due to their high momentum and erosive nature, sustained jet fires are one of the most hazardous types of fires that can threaten the integrity of process facilities.

Due to their high momentum and erosive nature, sustained jet fires are one of the most hazardous types of fires that can threaten the integrity of process facilities. Identifying jet fire risks and providing adequate protection early in the design are crucial for mitigating—in the most economical manner—the consequences of, and the potential for, the escalation of major accident events, while ensuring compliance with applicable laws and regulations. Although guidance and methodology are available for determining protection against pool fires (e.g., API RP 2218), there is no universally recognized code or standard that addresses jet fire risks.
