SUMMARY

'Blast & Fire Engineering for Topside Structures: Phase I - Final Reports' is a series of 26 work package reports written as part of Phase I of the Joint Industry Project on Blast and Fire Engineering for Topside Structures. Phase 1 of the JIP started in May 1990 to collate, appraise and disseminate information on blast and fire loads, and on the resistance of structures and facilities to these loads. The findings of the work carried out during Phase I of the JIP were collated into these 26 reports which summarise the state-of-the-art in fire and explosion engineering in 1991.

 

TABLE OF CONTENTS
