The objective of this project was originally specified as to “perform literature review on relevant research and dust explosion incidents focused on those factors which impact the dust hazard assessment, such as dispersibility (entrainability), layer thickness and entrainment characteristics of dust particles, facility geometry and deposition characteristics, etc.”
