Emergency Decision Support System of Offshore Platform Fires

Project description

A framework to evaluate and minimise the offshore platform fire risk

The EU-funded STOPFIRE project aims to identify typical fire scenarios on offshore oil and gas platforms by analysing fire accidents and creating numerical simulations on the temporal and spatial evolution of the fires. A risk warning model of offshore platform fire evacuation will be built based on the wavelet neural network. Moreover, human behaviour will be studied, in an effort to elucidate the impact of fires on people and other assets. The project's work will be carried out with the help of a wide range of disciplines, including computation fluid dynamics, multi-agent-based evacuation simulations, probabilistic inference and virtual reality technology.
