About the webinar.

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 is covered in this webinar:

  • Features of the tent design that are new or unique
    • base anchorage
    • quick-release fabric wall panels
    • lightweight framing
  • 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
    • Flammable/thermal protection
    • Toxic protection
