This course is an introduction into the FRED modeling tool.
The FRED software is a user friendly tool that gathers in one environment state-of-the-art Fire, Release, Explosion and Dispersion models to predict the consequences of accidental and design releases of products from process, storage, transport and distribution operations. It provides the user with an at-a-glance overview of the extent of blast waves, gas contours and heat radiation directly on site plan.
FRED has been continuously developed and validated by Shell since the 1980s, and has been extensively used by oil, gas and petrochemical operating companies, engineering contractors, insurers and regulators throughout the world. The integrated models rely on an extensive and unique program of large-scale experiments, combined with validated scientific research, that assure the reliability and consistency of the results.
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to use FRED for setting up, running and extracting results for a basic range of typical FRED scenarios
People who intend to carry out consequence modelling with FRED or work closely together people performing these types of FRED simulations. These include safety engineers and consultants in risk consultancy companies, oil & gas and process industries, regulatory bodies, engineering companies amongst others.
