Book Description:

Dedicated to the Memory and Spirit of Donald F. Othmer. Though there are many industry practices for building design and siting, they do not always apply to all sectors of the industry, or ensure consistent levels of safety. This practical book, written by the same author as API Recommended Practice 752, provides the details to implement the recommended practice, "Management of Hazards Associated with Location of Process Plant Buildings." Its *******s include safety guidelines on fire and explosion risks to process plant buildings as a result of events external to the building, which can apply across the spectrum of industries, and to conditions at any site. The book also offers guidance on assessing, screening, and managing risks associated with building design and siting. Two appendices give extensive coverage of explosion and fire phenomena, and effects and principles of blast-resistant design.
