The purpose of this website is to disseminate useful information to those involved in studying industrial explosion and process safety hazards. The overarching goal is to help reduce the frequency of these incidents in industry and lower the impact on workers, their families, and communities.
Along with the general resources and information provided, three specific projects are currently being undertaken:
- Weekly tracking and updates of dust explosion incidents worldwide
- Literature summaries (“Three Minute Papers”) of academic literature related to explosion and process safety
- Development of educational material for using Computational Fluid Dynamics as a research tool for studying dust explosion
Stay up to date with dust explosion prevention and protection by signing up to the newsletter below. More information on the material provided in the newsletter can be found here.
