Issue 75 of the FABIG Newsletter now available for download!

New FABIG Newsletter available

We are pleased to inform you that the 75th edition of the FABIG Newsletter is now available to FABIG Members on the FABIG website.

All FABIG Newsletters are available here.

This issue comprises the following articles:

  • Review of the Technical Meeting which covered ‘Fire Hazards in Enclosed Spaces / Compartments’, G. Vannier - SCI, R. Wighus - RISE Fire Research, J. Stewart - HSE, R.N. Kleiveland - DNV GL (formerly ComputIT), G. Ferrara & T. Bengherbia - DNV GL, V. Martin - HSE
  • A review of the Q9 equivalent cloud method for explosion modelling,
    J. Stewart & S. Gant - Health and Safety Executive
    This paper reviews the available literature describing the various equivalent cloud methods and critically evaluates the justification and use of such approaches for industrial applications. The implications of the use of Q9 in QRA studies are also discussed.
  • Comparative assessment of methods used to determine the effect of fire loads on the ultimate strength of offshore structures, J. Czujko - Nowatec, L. Brubak - DNV GL, G.S. Kim - HHI, K. Tabri - Tallinn University of Technology, W. Tang - Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Y. Yamada - National Institute of Maritime, Port, Aviation Technology (MPAT), Z.J. Czaban - Department of National Defence (Canada), D. Pearson - LR
    This paper presents the results of an extensive benchmark study that was performed to investigate the discrepancies in structural response calculations using different modelling and analysis software. The impact of decisions concerning key variables used in the analysis to model and apply structural and fire loads, as well as procedures for calculating results are highlighted by the study.
  • Resistance of welded steel tubular joints at elevated temperatures, Y. Wang - University of Manchester, and E. Ozyurt - Gumushane University
    This paper summarises the results of an extensive numerical investigation on the assessment of welded tubular joint resistance at elevated temperatures by modifying the ambient temperature resistance equations for the cases of axial load and in-plane bending in brace members.
  • Modelling Subsea Gas Releases, J.E. Olsen - SINTEF
    This article provides an overview of the CFD model developed as part of the SURE project for the prediction of gas dispersion in the ocean.
