Design procedures for blast, explosion and fire analysis of offshore structures
Explosions, fires and other accidents are major risks in the offshore industry. Extreme loads arising for structural from accidents create a challenge engineers in the design of safe and weight-efficient structures. The use of design procedures based on state-of-the-art computational technology allows for weight-optimised structural designs that meet defined safety requirements. The finite element method (FEM) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) as a computational tools has been extensively used in the offshore industry. It has been applied both for global and local simulation to study the behavior of the offshore structures.
The following aspects are normally considered in order to achieve an optimum design for blast-resistant walls and partitions:
- Definition of design explosion and fire loads
- Establishment of the behavior of materials to be used for the design for high rate loads
- Determination of the behavior and strength of walls by means of non-linear FE modelling
FE modelling for offshore structures resistant to explosions and fires
Design procedures for creating offshore structures resistant to explosions and fires are normally based on the selection of design principles such as deterministic, probabilistic and risk-based design.
Methods used in designing structures that are resistant to explosions and fires include simplified methods and non-linear FE modelling and analysis. FE models involve accurate description of modelling techniques including modelling of structures, materials, and fire and explosion loads.
Safety doors must be built to meet OSHA, MSHA, NFPA Standards, FM Global Standards, European ATEX Directives and other many other standards when needed. Our advanced finite element simulation-based design for blast, explosion and fire will help you to satisfy all aspect of regulations in design step.
