The Estimation of Vulnerability in Domino Accidental Events
The present study was aimed to the assessment of vulnerability (death probability) of domino accidents in the framework of quantitative area risk analysis. Different approaches for the calculation of vulnerability were compared and applied for the analysis of case studies. The effects of different assumptions on the severity and risk indexes were compared.
