Storage System Criteria for Hazardous Products
Abstract:Structures designed for the storage of hazardous products must meet strength, stiffness, durability and tightness requirements. However, assessing the safety of a storage system as a whole involves more than just conformity with codes. Analysis of why and how a system might fail, and the potential consequences of a catastrophic failure, should belong to the safety assessment process. In this paper, some aspects of low probability/high consequence risks are considered. The role of robust passive safety components is also considered, and an example illustrates the integrated criteria approach.

Structural Engineering International (SEI), the quarterly Journal of IABSE, published since 1991, is the leading international journal of structural engineering dealing with all types of structures and materials. SEI offers its readers a unique blend of short profiles on recent structures, and longer, in-depth technical articles on research, development, design, construction and maintenance. Articles are written by practicing engineers and academia from around the world and reflect the high standards of IABSE. IABSE Peer Review stamps are given to papers that have passed through a highly selective review process and demonstrate a significant contribution to the state of structural engineering knowledge.To recognise contributions of the highest quality, an Outstanding Paper Award is presented each year.
SEI is printed in Switzerland; ISSN 1016-8664; E-ISSN 1683-0350
