Abstract
With the enlargement of the urban areas, the threats of the oil storage tank areas to the citizens are increasing. From the historical tank accident data, most oil tank accidents are associated with the domino effect, and an effective and fast rescue can give a good control of the accident spread. In this paper, the quantitative risk for oil tank storage areas under different firefighting ability is studied. The firefighting ability is represented by the firefighting starting time. The domino effect is considered in detail and the heat flux contribution of the tank area is obtained using the solid flame model. According to the risk distribution, the best rescue positions can be determined by the firefighters. Moreover, the effects of the tank volume and the thermal radiation on the tank failure are discussed. This method is applied to the risk analysis of a real storage tank area. The results can provide some guidance on the planning of the fire station and the firefighting foam preparation.
