Dust Explosion Courses
This course is an introduction into the theory and mechanisms in dust explosion and to the concepts and models within FLACS. It will cover all typical areas of consequence modelling within the software dealing with dust explosions, including modeling dust layers, events and mitigation measure (e.g. vent panels). This course combines both theory and practical exercises with the FLACS software; therefore students will be required to practice and apply their new knowledge of the software through extensive hands-on workshops. About half the time will consist of presentations and the rest will be hands-on with the FLACS software for Dust Explosions applications.
• Introduction: Gexcon, Explosions & FLACS – FLACS DustEx
• Constructing internal geometries
• Working with databases, geometries and objects
• Defining and verifying the computational grid
• Calculating and verifying porosities
• Analysing data from 20-litre explosion vessels
• Defining dust explosion scenarios
• Running simulations
• Analysing results
• Verifying results
Who should attend:
People who intend to carry out consequence modelling with FLACS DustEx or work closely together people performing these types of FLACS simulations. These include safety engineers and consultants in risk consultancy companies, process industries, regulatory bodies, engineering companies and many more. The course could potentially also be useful for structural and process engineers, as these disciplines can benefit of using results from FLACS DustEx studies, by providing a better understanding of the most relevant parameters and mechanisms.
Attendance of this course is mandatory for FLACS DustEx users.
