Metallic pressure vessels failures


First of all, this paper concentrates on the identification of possible explosion scenarios involving metallic vessels. Based on the review of scientific literature as well as internal work, an evaluation of the role of wall material is put forward. This work is supported by a summary of significant accident cases based on both recent INERIS experience and external sources. Given the importance of the vessel fallure mode during these accidents, this paper subsequently focuses on the mechanical modeling of tank fallure. This step consists in reviewing available models for metallic cracking and the way they handle with the phenomenon of fluid discharge.
