Abstract

This project aims to support the research already under development in the Analysis, Evaluation and Risk Management Laboratory (LabRisco) of the Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering Department of the Polytechnic School at University of São Paulo.The main goal of the ongoing research is to develop a methodology for quantitative consequences analysis involving a leakage of flammable and/or toxic substances in environments with barriers or semi confined; this methodology will effectively support the mitigation of the risks involved in operations where these conditions are present, i.e. in oil and gas production facilities, refineries and industrial plants.Despite the available infrastructure in LabRisco in order to fully achieve the objectives it is necessary to supplement the resources, especially concerning to the required field tests. Thus, this project makes up the budget resources needed to run the field tests and a little improvement of the existing infrastructure at the institution. (AU)
