Forensic Investigation of Processing Plant Accidents
This is the first book to provide a scientific methodology for investigating accidents at processing plants. It ensures compliance with codes and standards specific to type of plant as well as the country in which the event occurred. Founded on theoretical fundamentals, the book takes readers through the steps needed to find the responsibility for an accident. These include gaining testimonial information, studying plant documentation and plant design, checking standard operating procedures and whether they were followed, and testing plant components by non-destructive methods.
