... subjected to sudden valve closure, pressure surges should not cause pressures sufficient to ignite hydrogen. However, for other combinations of pressure and temperature, the autoignition temperature may be exceeded in liquid filled systems. In short, all fluid transients will not induce explosions, but some...

...Q. Dong; B. Y. Hu; S. Y. Chen; Y. Gu Explosion containment vessels have been widely used to contain the internal blast effects. In this paper, we present engineering design and experimental results of a real multiple-use spherical explosion containment vessel, which has been employed to withstand...

... explosion but created during long term operation before the failure. There is hardly any significant residual deformation in the fracture, which indicates that the failure of the reactor belongs to a brittle one. The process of the failure consists of three stages (Fig. 9 ): The first stage was crack...

...Denis D. Rickman; Donald W. Murrell The interaction of an airblast wave with a structure, and the blast wave propagation around and over the structure is of significant importance. In order to protect a structure from the airblast produced by such explosive threats as terrorist bombs, a facility...

...) and six boiling liquid expanding vapor explosion (BLEVEd) (total loss of containment). The difference between the BLEVE and non-BLEVE failures was due to a difference in the fire conditions. It is believed that these tests show some insight into the BLEVE process. In all tests the fire consisted...

...Tong Wa Chao; Joseph E. Shepherd The role of loading rate and fluid properties in the fracture of piping under internal explosions is an important issue for designers and accident analysis. This was examined by fracture experiments on thin-walled and preflawed aluminum 6061-T6 tubes. The tubes were...

Under normal conditions, a given high explosive can only provide some kind of magnitude of dynamic pressure after its explosion. Therefore, it is whether possible to obtain the higher dynamic pressure...
