Description

Design and Control of Safety Critical Processes
This program is new and under development. The purpose of this project is to establish methods for evaluation of process safety, which are based upon known non-linear process behaviour near safety critical operating conditions. One methodology has been developed and evaluated on batch, semibatch or continuous homogeneous reactors with potential for thermal runaway. The initial aim is to clarify the safety margin imbedded in conventional safety related design rules for safety critical reactors. A further aim is to investigate possible benefits from control.
