Abstract

Seismic events may result in hazardous material releases at industrial facilities with consequences such as fires, explosions, or toxic dispersions. Methods and tools to assess the risk of so-called Natech events are still limited although they occur repeatedly. The Rapid Natech Risk Analysis and Mapping system (RAPID-N) provides unique and scalable Natech risk analysis capabilities to fill this gap by covering all functionalities needed for on-site natural hazard severity assessment, damage analysis, Natech scenario development, and hazardous consequence analysis. The system features an innovative and easily extendable framework to estimate the missing data and to build case-specific dynamic models required for the analysis. The results are presented as risk reports with maps of probabilistic impact zones of the potential Natech scenarios, which can be used for plant design, land-use planning, early warning, and emergency management purposes.
