"For industrial explosion protection, residual risk analysis determines the likelihood that a given protection scheme will fail to mitigate an explosion occurrence, where one or more points of a system are subject to failure. Current design practice for providing explosion protection measures for industrial hazards follows a process where, although the designer satisfies accepted industry codes and standards, the result is a system where the risk of failure remains unknown. This thesis proposes and demonstrates the use of a methodology to assist design engineers in constructing an explosion protection system that meets a specified quantifiable level of risk. This new methodology can assist building owners and decision makers in selecting a design that best meets their risk-based goals and objectives."
