Damage Assessment for System Safety (DASS 19-1)

February 11, 2019 @ 8:00 am - February 13, 2019 @ 4:00 pm


Course Description

Sophisticated mathematical models and methods have been developed to estimate the level of impact of a hazardous condition.  This course is intended to provide an overall understanding of these methods to help managers and system safety analysis reviewers understand the analysis conducted and results obtained by the experts in the field.  Specifically methods for modeling the impact of fire and explosion, debris distribution from an explosion, and toxic gas dispersion are discussed.


To provide an overall understanding of the methods and models used to estimate the damage extent caused by hazardous conditions.
