The next step will use Safeti Offshores inbuilt time-saving case generation tool for systematic, automatic creation of all of your failure cases. These include creation of cases for dynamic discharge calculations which take account of success or failure of detection, blow-down and isolation systems. Fire, smoke, and explosion calculations will be introduced and their results reviewed. The contribution of accidents to escalation, impairment and fatality will be assessed in the reporting tools. Amongst the many hundreds of thousands of possible hazardous events, the fires, explosions, and smoke results can be seen in the 3D viewer. You will use the 3D environment to walk through the event with a timeline controller – with this you will understand how the event unfolds, watch the failure of walls and decks and see escalation of neighbouring containment causing fire spreading, or you may see that the safety systems were effective at mitigating the event.
