Probabilistic vulnerability assessment of chemical clusters subjected to external Acts of Interference

Article English OPEN
Argenti, F.; Landucci, G; Reniers, G.L.L.M.E.;

Acts of interference against chemical facilities or chemical clusters might result in severe consequences in case of a successful attack (major explosions, fires, toxic dispersions or environmental contamination). Although process facilities implement multiple safety ba... View more
