The project consists of a benchmark with the main objective of: (i) conducting independent reviews of an existing risk analysis study of a reference Seveso establishment, and (ii) assessing the risk in the selected impact area. The overall e

Serious explosion accidents have occurred in EU countries that have involved the bulk storage of display fireworks. Currently, there is no means of estimating the hazards posed by such storage and the UN transport classification scheme is all that ca

This experimental/ theoretical/numerical project aims at revealing the physical-chemical mechanisms of explosion, and at deriving innovative methods for explosion protection. Both LES and VLES modelling strategies, with appropriate models for combust

Specific Objectives -To provide scientific and technical assistance to DGENV on the formulation, implementation and monitoring of EU policy on the control of major hazards and the prevention and mitigation of major accidents; -To manage the Europ

Currently used design tools and methods for ship propeller design are not able t o predict the effects of scientific phenomena like cavitation, vortices and propeller hull interaction, some of these phenomena are not completely understood. For this r

Semiconducting oxide sensors (e.g. Tagushi-sensors) used for olfactory imaging at present are inherently too slow to provide instantaneous response required for real-time process monitoring and control in the industry. Besides they are prone to humid
