APPLICATION OF DYLAM TO THE SAFETY ANALYSIS OF CHEMICAL PROCESSES
Safety analysis of hazardous processes requires the use of models to simulate dangerous transient conditions and to assess the availability of the relevant mitigating and protective systems. As the paper shows, these two needs can be fairly well satisfied by the application of DYLAM, which is able to take into account the dynamic aspects of the interaction between time-dependent operational variables, control and protection systems and human interventions at both nominal and failure conditions, and, therefore, presents significant advantages with respect to the normally utilized fault trees/event trees.
