Phast software is a tool used by safety engineers to assess the risk of industrial activities and to determine the extent of potential hazards and casualties caused by accidents.
Predicting and modeling accidents before they occur has always been one of the hopes of safety engineers. There are several techniques and methods in this regard. But modeling the consequences of accidents without the use of expert software is very time consuming and mostly erroneous. Phast software is one of several products developed by DNV , one of the pioneers in assessing industrial hazards and accidents. As a result, the software is recognized as one of the decision-making tools of companies and governments in industrial hazards and public safety.
Phast has been extensively evaluated. In addition, the results of a separate study of the comprehensive UDM model provided by DNV show that both the theory and the ability of this model to predict events are very effective. This particular software modeling of fire, explosion and liberation … of toxic substances in industrial plants and is now the world’s largest oil and gas companies have bought and used .
Modeling the consequences of possible accidents in a single process is one of the most important steps in risk assessment. This step involves modeling the release of substances into the environment and then modeling the consequences of the toxicity, ignition, or explosion of these substances. Today, this step is done by computer software due to the complexity of modeling relationships and the time it takes to solve them. Phast software models events such as fires and explosions of tanks and pipes, and graphically displays the results, including the range of impact. These results are used in emergency response planning and complex hazards.
