Description of the research projects
Trends in risk levels on the Norwegian continental shelf
The purpose of the project is to:
The work will also help to identify potential areas for making regulatory changes and for conducting research and development.
The project is based on two complementary evaluation processes:
The project focuses on risk to personnel and covers major accidents, occupational accidents, work environ¬ment factors and a number of minor accidental events

Heat exposure of process equipment
About the project:
Comparison between different standards on recommmended heat loads from flames shows great variation. In general, heat loads from flames do vary in space an d is dependent on fuel and surrounding conditions. Heat exposure in standards should be a carracteristic heat load representing the average exposure of an object. It is difficult to identify a carracteristic heat load by measuring heat flux in local points in a flame.
The project startet in 2002, and the objective was to answer the question:'What is a relevant heat load, and how should it be modeled'. Key issues in the 2003 project was heat transfer between materials, liquids and gas.
