Since 1987 – Safety Consultancy

Consequences Analysis

Consequence analysis is carried on to evaluate the extent of the possible consequences associated to the top-events and is an integral part of a safety review/report. To learn about Eidos risk acceptance and integration methods please refer to risk evaluation and mitigation.

Eidos is licensed to DNV Phast Multicomponent with the new radiation shielding extension.

Eidos has developed specific methods for these more “exotic” scenarios:

  • Production of missiles made of ductile material due to explosions and their effects on people, buildings and equipments
  • Production of debris made of brittle material due to explosions and their effects on people, buildings and equipments
  • Consequences coming from seismic waves (screening method developed with Politecnico di Torino University)
  • Consequences of spills of dangerous substances on groundwaters
  • Effects on buildings from explosion blasts
  • Domino effects arising from heat radiations, explosion blasts and missile productions. Eidos has developed two different sets of model for screening or detailed evaluation

Of course every modification/improvement that can arise during the development of the design will lead to a review of the consequences analysis.

Eidos employs skilled personnel on GIS (ArcInfo) and CAD (Autodesk) to produce consequence plots.

In recent years Google Earth is becoming more and more popular. During the first stages of design when usually the plot plan is not already available or is still subjected to extensive modification, Google Earth let us evaluate faster the consequences in particular in the surrounding area. So, Eidos extended its knowledge on GIS/CAD to include the capability of preparing kmz (the native format of Google Earth application) consequences representations fully geo-referenced and in 3D as showcased in the picture below.
