You are tasked to acquire a worksite tent for an upcoming turnaround (a scheduled shutdown of all or part of a plant’s operations), but which tent will satisfy API 756, “Management of Hazards Associated with Location of Process Plant Tents”, to keep your workers safe from an accidental explosion? This presentation will cover some unique design features of a blast resistant tent specifically designed for blast response. The presentation will also showcase some modeling and testing performed to validate the tents’ blast performance to satisfy API 756.
What will be covered in this webinar:
Features of the tent design that are new or unique
quick-release fabric wall panels
Finite element modeling of the design
Testing performed to validate performance
Component level in the shock tube
Full-scale vented deflagration loading
Limitations of the use of a blast resistant tent
Use case for permanent vs. temporary installation
About the presenters:
• 25 years of experience in blast resistant design of structures to resist blast loads and other effects from accidental industrial explosions.
• Co-chair for the ASCE Task Committee on Blast-Resistant Design, which is in the process of releasing a new edition of the manual called “Design of Blast-Resistant Buildings in Petrochemical Facilities.”
• Participant on the ASME committees responsible for publishing the PCC-2 Repair of Pressure Equipment and Piping and PCC-3 Risk-Based Inspection Standards.
