This paper presents a systematic literature review of risk assessment methods in the chemical process industry (CPI), focusing on process safety, process security, and resilience. We analyzed peer-reviewed articles from 2000 to 2022 using the PRISMA methodology and identified twelve predominant methods. Our findings reveal a shift towards...

In the built environment, often too much focus is put on compliance instead of seeking the optimal fire-safety solution for the building. Because of a lack of tangible incentives for building owners, the benefits of implementing fire safety measures and their societal contribution are often not recognized and therefore, not considered. By means...

Domino effects are high-impact low-probability events that can have catastrophic consequences. To prevent and to reduce risks related to such events, safety barriers (SBs) are crucial. However, the initiation, propagation, and stopping processes of domino effects are characterized with complexity and uncertainties and hence they are...

The estimation of failure probability is challenging in hydrogen embrittlement in steel pipelines due to the complexity of the synergistic effect of multiple factors. The present study proposed a hybrid methodology to estimate the failure probability of steel pipelines due to hydrogen embrittlement. The methodology integrates the fault tree...

Emergency response is a procedural safety barrier of paramount importance for the mitigation of fire scenarios and the prevention of escalation. However, in Natech scenarios, emergency response may be affected by the natural event impacting the site. Indeed, when contrasting Natech accidents, emergency responders have to face both the natural...

Fire-induced domino effect is one of the main threats to hazardous material storage tanks, and many attempts have been conducted to assess the vulnerability of storage tanks exposed to fire to evaluate domino effect risk. However, past research ignored the influence of wind load on the thermal buckling behavior of storage tanks exposed to...

To maintain continuous production, chemical plant operators may ignore faults or handle faults online rather than shutting down process systems. However, interaction and interdependence links between components in a digitalized process system are substantial. Thus, faults will be propagated to downstream nodes, potentially leading to risk...

Federated Learning (FL) has emerged as a privacy-preserving paradigm for collaborative deep learning model training across distributed data silos. Despite its importance, FL faces challenges such as high latency and less effective global models. In this paper, we propose ShuffleFL, an innovative framework stemming from the hierarchical FL, which...

System resilience denotes the capacity to uphold desired system performance in the face of disruptions. Evaluating the resilience of a process system necessitates a thorough consideration of the intricate interplay between its components and the pivotal role of process parameters in reflecting the repercussions of disruptions on the system....

Chemical process systems are becoming more automated and complex, which leads to increased interaction and interdependence between the human and technical elements of process systems. This urges the need for updating the safety assessment method by treating “safety” as an emergent property of a system. Uncertainty comes together with...

Recent increases in climate-induced natural disasters have amplified the risk of Natech (natural hazard-triggered technological) accidents, particularly in the chemical industry. These emergencies, characterized by their urgency and resource constraints, pose significant challenges for emergency planning. The Functional Resonance Analysis...

Chemical plants face safety hazards and security threats that may induce catastrophic scenarios. Safety and security barriers are employed widely to protect chemical plants from accidental and intentional undesired events and mitigate consequences. Managing safety and security barriers effectively and economically is a research topic with...

This paper elaborates three novel contributions in the field of chemical process safety. The first contribution is the identification and classification of chemical system variabilities into seven broad categories, namely, media, equipment, component, operator, procedural, management, and external (MECOPME). The identified variabilities lead to...

System resilience characterizes the capability of maintaining the required functionality under disruptions, which is of great significance in evaluating the productivity and safety of complex engineered systems. Although most studies conduct resilience assessment from qualitative and quantitative perspectives, system functionality that reflects...

Long short-term memory (LSTM) has been widely applied to real-time automated natural gas leak detection and localization. However, LSTM approach could not provide the interpretation that this leak position is localized instead of other positions. This study proposes a leakage detection and localization approach by integrating the attention...

The severe effects of extreme wildfire events in recent years have shown that the fire suppression approach is not enough to solve the problem. An alternative to dealing with this issue is to accept the impossibility of eliminating wildfire hazards and focus on preparing systems to be more resilient. However, existing decision-making tools...

Offshore Oil&Gas facilities are attractive targets of intentional malicious attacks (security attacks) that may trigger cascading events (e.g., the release and dispersion of hazardous material and/or energy, fires, explosions) with consequences on people, environment, and assets. The severity of these consequences is potentially similar to...

Safety instrumented systems(SIS) have been widely used in petroleum and chemical plants to detect and respond to dangerous events and prevent them from developing into accidents. The in-service time of SIS does not exceed its useful life is one of the crucial assumptions of IEC functional safety standards. The testing method recommended in the...
