Incorporating Risk Assessment and Inherently Safer Design Practices into Chemical Engineering Education
Seay, Jeffrey R.; Eden, Mario R.
Chemical Engineering Education, v42 n3 p141-146 Sum 2008
This paper introduces, via case study example, the benefit of including risk assessment methodology and inherently safer design practices into the curriculum for chemical engineering students. This work illustrates how these tools can be applied during the earliest stages of conceptual process design. The impacts of decisions made during conceptual process design are analyzed using risk assessment methodology. The application of this methodology to design problems considered by process design students is demonstrated. (Contains 5 tables and 2 figures.)
