Title: Dust explosions flame and pressure effects outside vents
Subtitle: Guidance for industry

Ref Code: FN7
Authors: G Ramachandran

Abstract1: Explosion relief venting is a common form of explosion protection. As well as the pressure developed inside a vented vessel, a vented explosion generates secondary effects, due to blast and fire, outside the vented vessel. These effects need to be considered so appropriate protection can be provided for people or nearby installations and buildings. This report provides practical guidance on the external effects of vented dust explosions and is based on the results of explosion studies undertaken across Europe.
