Process and Storage Vessels Exposed to Fires Webinars

AIChE Academy 2 Part Series Presented by ioMosaic

Attendance to these webinars is free.

Two 60-minute ioMosaic sponsored webinars.

Part 1: Fire Characterization Webinar


Part 1: Fire Characterization

Wed, May 23 @ 2:00PM EDT

Join this webinar series to identify best practices for assessing the failure potential of pressure and storage vessels exposed to external fire. You’ll also explore mitigation considerations, including pressure relief and de-pressuring systems, water sprays and fire proof insulation. In Fire Characterization, you’ll learn how to best characterize fire loading including flame temperature, fire flux and duration.


Part 2: Failure Assessment Webinar 


Part 2: Failure Assessment

Wed, May 30 @ 2:00PM EDT

If your process and storage vessels were exposed to fire, what is the likelihood they would fail? Learn failure assessment best practices in this webinar series. In Failure Assessment, you’ll review the fire loading established in Fire Characterization. In addition, you’ll examine methods for determining the failure potential and expected time to failure of vessels exposed to fire loading.
