Shell FRED Introductory Course (Online)

Fee: USD 1,200

This course is an introduction into the theory and applications of FRED v7. It will cover all the existing consequence modeling scenarios within the software, including source term modelling, pool formation, gas dispersion, jet and pool fires, impinging fires, vessel burst smoke ingress in buildings/temporary refuge and explosion scenarios in congested and/or confined areas.

This course combines both theory and practical exercises with the FRED v7 software; Therefore students will be required to practice and apply their new knowledge of the software through hands-on exercises. The online course time will be instructional presentations on the use of the tool and the accompanying exercises should be completed outside of the scheduled course time. Time will be allowed during and after the presentations for Q&A on the exercises and the instructor will be available during the software evaluation period to answer questions.

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to use FRED V7 for setting up, running and extracting results for a basic range of typical scenarios.

People who intend to carry out consequence modeling 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 and engineering companies.

This course is suitable for completely new users of FRED as well as existing users who would like to refresh their knowledge. In general no special prerequisites are needed, but any prior knowledge in safety consequence modeling, process engineering and 2D modeling will be helpful.
