Abstract

This paper presents a risk assessment approach for the case of possible explosions in a series of tanks. Explosion occurs in a tank and spreads to the adjacent or neighboring tanks with certain probabilities. An excel simulation procedure is applied to a case problem with a series of three tanks and the level of risks involved is determined with possible monetary loss values. The simulation is a useful tool for risk assessment of such cases and can be applied to other related problem areas in industry.
