Designing Risk-Minimized Layout for Hazardous Utilities in Chemical Process Industries Using the New Methodology RIDIMPUS
We have recently proposed in this journal a new methodology ‘Risk and Distance Minimization in Process industry Units Siting’ (RIDIMPUS) (J Fail Anal Prev 18:83–91, 2018). The methodology has been developed for siting hazardous utilities within the periphery of a chemical process industry in such a manner that the inter-utility distance is minimized while also minimizing the risk of accidents due to those hazardous utilities. In this follow-up report, we present a case study which demonstrates the applicability of RIDIMPUS and validates its efficacy.
