The security and economic stability of many nations and multinational oil companies are highly dependent on the safe and uninterrupted operation of their oil, gas and chemical facilities. One of the most critical impacts that can occur to these operations are fires and explosions from accidental or political incidents. This publication is intended as a general engineering handbook and reference guideline for those personnel involved with fire and explosion protection aspects of critical hydrocarbon facilities. Design guidelines and specifications of major, small and independent oil companies as well as information from engineering firms and published industry references have been reviewed to assist in its preparation. Some of the latest published practices and research into fire and explosions have also been mentioned.

Keinem Ingenieur sollte ein Betrieb anvertraut werden, der nicht mit den reak tionstechnischen Voraussetzungen zur Entstehung und mit den verheerenden Auswirkungen entstandener Explosionen auf Menschen und Sachgüter und in der Umwelt vertraut ist. Gas- und Staub explosionen treten immer unerwartet auf. Die Anforderungen an das Verantwortungsbewußtsein aller im Betrieb tä tigen Menschen können wegen der vielfach tragischen Folgen von Explosionen nicht hoch genug gestellt werden. Es sind nicht nur technische, sondern, in starkem Maße, auch psychologische Probleme, die gelöst werden müssen, wenn den Explosionen und allen damit verbundenen Gefahren wirkungsvoll begeg net werden soll. Der Autor dieses Buches hat sein technisch-wissenschaftliches Wirken dem Explosionsschutz gewidmet. Dieses Buch, dem bereits zwei Bücher zum glei chen Thema vorausgingen, ist das des hervorragenden und engagierten Inge nieurs und Wissenschaftlers. Seine Arbeiten gereichen dem "Verein Deutscher Ingenieure", insbesondere der ,,YDI-Kommission Reinhaltung der Luft" zur Ehre. Denn der Autor hat nicht nur die technisch-wissenschaftlichen Erkennt nisse zusammen mit ebenso engagierten Kollegen erarbeitet und gesammelt, er hat sie auch im Rahmen von öffentlichen Veranstaltungen des VDI den Fach kollegen in Industrie und Wissenschaft vermittelt. Seine Arbeit galt und gilt dem Schutz des Menschen, den technischen Anlagen und der Umwelt. Gestützt auf die zum Thil mit großem Aufwand erarbeiteten technisch-wis senschaftlichen Grundlagen werden der vorbeugende und der konstruktive Schutz vor Explosionen brennbarer Gase und Dämpfe, brennbarer Stäube so wie hybrider Gemische aus diesen Stoffgruppen behandelt. Darüber hinaus werden Schutzmaßnahmen für besondere Apparate und Anlagenteile ausführ lich behandelt.

Written from the perspective of industrial users, this is the only book that describes how to install an effective firewater pumping system in a pragmatic and budget-conscious way rather than with purely the regulatory framework in mind. Based on the wide-ranging industrial experience of the author, this book is also the only one that deals with the particular risks and requirements of off-shore facilities. This book takes the reader beyond the prescriptive requirements of the fire code (NFPA, UL) and considers how to make the best choice of design for the budget available as well as how to ensure the other components of the pumping system and supporting services are optimized. The only alternative to guides written by regulatory enforcement bodies, this book is uniquely practical and objective – demonstrating how and why the standards need to be met Covers a wide range of industries, including those with exceptional requirements such as off-shore petroleum facilities and chemical plants Written by someone who has been responsible for the safety of large numbers of workers and billions of dollars worth of equipment, for those in similarly responsible positions

An encyclopedic, A-Z listing of terminology, Loss Prevention and Safety Control: Terms and Definitions addresses the need for a comprehensive reference that provides a complete and sufficient description of the terminology used in the safety/loss prevention field. Fostering clarity in communication among diverse segments within the field and between outside agencies, this book: Provides a reference for the background, meaning, and description of safety and loss prevention terms being used in government, industry, research, and education Contains two-paragraph descriptions of terms, photographs, diagrams, graphs, and tables to aid understanding of the subject, making it more than a dictionary Includes common safety terms, safety engineering aspects, a description of safety organizations, and a list of common safety standards and their scope The field of safety and loss prevention encompasses myriad unrelated industries and organizations, such as insurance companies, research entities, process industries, and educational organizations. These organizations may not realize that their terminology is not understood by individuals or even compatible with the nomenclature used outside their own sphere of influence. And even though fire protection and environmental professionals use identical and similar terminology, their meanings may be slightly different in selected applications. An all-encompassing reference, the book uses OSHA standards and interpretations as guidelines for the definitions and explanations. Drawing from the many areas that influence the terminology, it provides a basic understanding of the terms used in lost prevention and control.

Die Überarbeitung für die 10. deutschsprachige Auflage von Hermann Schlichtings Standardwerk wurde wiederum von Klaus Gersten geleitet, der schon die umfassende Neuformulierung der 9. Auflage vorgenommen hatte. Es wurden durchgängig Aktualisierungen vorgenommen, aber auch das Kapitel 15 von Herbert Oertel jr. neu bearbeitet. Das Buch gibt einen umfassenden Überblick über den Einsatz der Grenzschicht-Theorie in allen Bereichen der Strömungsmechanik. Dabei liegt der Schwerpunkt bei den Umströmungen von Körpern (z.B. Flugzeugaerodynamik). Das Buch wird wieder den Studenten der Strömungsmechanik wie auch Industrie-Ingenieuren ein unverzichtbarer Partner unerschöpflicher Informationen sein.
