Analysis of Accidental Consequence of Butadiene Tank
Butadiene is a kind of important material in the chemical engineering, and it is inflammable and explosive. Once it leaks to the air, fire and explosion accident may happen. In the current experiment, the Butadiene tank in a chemical plant was taken as the example to analyze the potential hazards that the tank may cause. Some mathematical models, such as the UVCE（the Unconfined Vapor Cloud Explosion） and the BLEVE（the Boiling Liquid Expanding Vapor Explosion）, were used to describe the results that the hazards may lead to，so that it could provide some scientific criteria to the similar companies, and help the companies to take measures to keep away from these dangers, and reduce the casualty and loss in the end.
