Booknews
Case histories reveal the causes and aftermaths of numerous plant disasters--almost all of which could have been prevented--and provide insight into how to avoid similar catastrophes. This expanded edition features sections and chapters on heat exchangers, furnaces, inherently safer design, and runaway reactions. It analyzes accidents that have occurred since publication of the 1988 edition, including the Phillips 66 company Houston Chemical Complex explosion and the Piper Alpha disaster. It is concerned with the immediate technical causes of these disasters and the changes in design and procedures needed to prevent them from happening again. Annotation c.
