Accidents involving reactive chemicals can often be prevented, or their effects alleviated, if those handling them have a sound knowledge both of their hazardous properties and of appropriate handling methods. This book provides the necessary information. It opens with a description of some typical case histories of accidents involving reactive chemicals. Evaluation methods of energy hazard without computation and testing are then given (useful for preliminary hazard assessment), followed by two practical methods for predicting energy hazard by computation. All the data necessary for calculation are given so that the reader may easily apply these methods to his own problems. In the next three chapters, the testing methods are introduced in detail and examples of results of each test and comprehensive evaluations are given. The final three chapters deal in turn with activities of safety organizations in different countries, emergency response systems, and countermeasures to be adopted for the storage and handling of reactive chemicals in areas where earthquakes may occur. There are few books available on this subject and none which covers it so comprehensively.
