Once, counting as an important banking hub and capital for fashion design within the Arabian countries, Beirut’s favourable economic positioning was weakened by social unrests, political standstill, and economic volatility. Beirut’s population has been facing severe socioeconomic challenges for the past decades, also reflected in the fashion...

In this chapter, the research dedicated to moderate or intense low-oxygen dilution (MILD) combustion (also called flameless combustion) that relied on direct numerical simulations (DNS) is summarized. In particular, the various DNS carried out are detailed and three different configurations are considered: the autoigniting mixing layer...

This study aims to characterize the whole reaction process of (i) emulsion explosive matrix and sulfide ores, and (ii) ammonium nitrate and pyrite by the thermodynamics analysis method. A series of experiments were carried out at atmospheric pressure from 25 °C to 350 °C at four heating rates (3, 5, 10, and 15 K/min) and the Coats–Redfern method...

Landmines and Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) are among the most dangerous weapons found in (former) conflict areas. Many of them have only minimal or even no metal built in making it difficult to detect such devices via conventional metal detectors. Thus, alternative methods such as Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) are deployed for this...

Process and chemical industrial areas consist of hundreds and even thousands of installations situated next to each other, where quantities of hazardous (e.g., flammable, explosive, toxic) substances are stored, transported, or processed. These installations are mutually linked in terms of the hazard level they pose to each other in the system....

Open-pit mining blast patterns are designed to safely break rock mass at desired boundaries and to produce uniformly sized fragments that lead to the optimal performance of subsequent mining operations. An issue that is often overlooked, however, is the deviation of drillhole locations with respect to their coordinates as designed in the...

The explosion load is a significant escalation factor possibly influencing the potential occurrence of domino accidents in chemical plants. It is not economical to install explosion isolation systems (e.g., extinguishing barrier) for all equipment or process units across a chemical plant. Although shutting down all equipment or process unit...

Shock mounts are crucial components in reducing the transmissibility of a shock or impact, thereby protecting the objective system. Such shock mounts are application-specific and need a redesign for specific uses. This study establishes a transient nonlinear finite element optimization procedure to design a shock mount for withstanding an...

Vapor cloud explosion (VCE) accidents in recent years such as the Buncefield accident in 2005 indicate that VCEs in process plants may lead to unpredicted overpressures, resulting in catastrophic disasters. Although a lot of attempts have been done to assess VCEs in process plants, little attention has been paid to the spatial-temporal...

An explosion event, having a low probability of occurrence but severe consequences, due to a possible structural collapse, is a so-called "Low Probability and High Consequences (LP-HC)" event[13]. Due to the severe consequences, blast puts a great threat to public security. Thus, civil engineers should take these extreme cases into consideration...

The Plofbos has a strong character that is defined by the presence of a young forest that springs from the remains of a decomposing military structure. This new growth is dynamic. It continuously changes the light, smells, sight-lines and experiences throughout the seasons. Together with the diversity of open and enclosed spaces and the sense of...

Both security and efficiency are important performance areas of air transport systems. Several methods have been proposed to assess security risks and estimate efficiency independently, but only few of these methods identify relationships between security risks and efficiency performance indicators. To analyze security, efficiency, and the...

Transportation of flammable liquefied gas in tunnels presents a significant risk of an accidental loss of containment leading to an explosion with major consequences. Possible scenarios include a BLEVE, a non-reactive gas expansion explosion and a reactive gas explosion. Quantification of the risk and consequences associated with such events...

Chemical industrial areas may constitute potential targets for deliberate actions by terrorists. Terrorists having sufficient knowledge of chemical process operations or plant layout may take advantage of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) to cause major events such as fire, explosion and toxic gas dispersion with cross-border consequences...

Blasting operations form a central part of any hard rock metal mining operation, and are, given its inherent hazards, critical in ensuring safe mine working environments. In order to improve workplace safety in such operations, it is important to select the right explosives and technologies, to issue rules and procedures and to offer adequate...
