Componend fragility evaluation, seismic safety assessment and design of special risk petrochemical plants under design-basis and beyond-design-basis accident conditions

Short description

INDUSE-2-SAFETY aims at developing a quantitative risk assessment methodology for seismic loss prevention of “special risk” petrochemical plants and components, e.g., support structures, piping systems, tanks and pressure vessels, flange and tee joints, etc. The proposed probabilistic-based methodology will ensure safe functioning/shutdown under ground motions of increasing spectral acceleration through extensive analytical, FE and experimental investigations. Related harmonized importance factors γ and limit state probabilities will provide a uniform hazard versus uniform risk basis for EN 1990/EN 1998.
