21 July 2020

LUNCHTIME WEBINAR - 29th JULY 2020

We are pleased to inform you that our next FABIG Lunchtime Webinar will cover 'Offshore major hazards research 1990-2000: Dispersion and explosions' and will be given by Mike Johnson, DNV GL on 29th July 2020 from 13.00 BST.

For additional information and registration, please go to the Events section of the website.

This webinar will cover the following:

The need to design offshore structures to withstand blast requires an understanding of how damaging pressures are generated and the ability to predict such events using mathematical models. It was clear at the beginning of the 1990’s that although there was an understanding of the mechanisms involved in pressure generation in gas explosions, there were significant gaps in terms of applying this to offshore structures. There was, however, sufficient knowledge and evidence to show that severe gas explosions could be generated in geometries typical of offshore facilities. Over a period of ten years, a considerable amount of large and full-scale experimental studies were carried out to extend our understanding and crucially provide data that could be used to validate predictive models. It is a measure of the success of this research that the models have been routinely used in design projects over the past two decades. The need for the research will be described and the experimental programmes detailed, with the main highlights in the results being summarised.

FABIG WEBINAR SERIES

We will be organising lunchtime webinars every two weeks whilst working life remains disrupted by measures to combat the COVID-19 epidemic. Such measures either prohibit or make inadvisable large meetings such as our Technical Meetings.

We are still looking for presentations for our series of lunchtime Webinars and as such, please do not hesitate to contact us at fabig@steel-sci.com if you or one of your colleagues would like to give a presentation at one of the forthcoming FABIG Lunchtime Webinars.

Take care and stay safe,

The FABIG Team
