Published in: Journal of Applied Fire Science
Abstract: This article details the fire and explosion hazards associated with the handling and storage of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG). The article details various correlations for BLEVE and pool fire calculation for the size of the fireball, its duration and thermal flux and flame height at a distance for an isolated LPG tank, and the effect of thermal radiation on the population at various locations. It is found that the heat intensity at a distance has performed impact on the fatalities in the population. Safe distance in case of BLEVE and pool fire from LPG leakage/spillage is also calculated and shown graphically.
