Fostering current practices to a new generation approach
dealing with Domino Effects in the Process Industries

April 16-17th. 2014

Venue: Aula Magna “Enrico Mattei”
School of Engineering, Alma Mater Studiorum - University of Bologna

Viale Risorgimento 2, 40136 Bologna, Italy

It is well known that escalation events or so-called domino effects may cause the more severe
accident scenarios in the chemical and process industries. A relevant research effort was invested
on the subject in the last 15 years, However, due to the difficulties in the assessment of accident
escalation and propagation with respect to time and space, to the extremely low frequency of such
accidents, and to the increasing complexity of industrial facilities, the analysis, assessment and
management of domino scenarios is still an open research problem.
The workshop aims to spread relevant safety and reliability knowledge with respect to domino
effects and to this end, three main objectives can be mentioned: defining the state-of-the-art of
tools for the assessment of domino effects, discussing the current industrial management practices
to deal with domino effects, and identifying further research needs. A discussion with academia,
industrial stakeholders, control authorities and software owners is planned to pave the way to the
implementation of consolidated research results in current practice. The analysis of further needs,
also in the light of progress in advanced assessment techniques as BBN and dynamic risk
assessment, will be aimed to identify shared research drivers for further scientific progress on the

How to reach the School of Engineering and Architecture in Viale Risorgimento 2, Bologna.

By bus from the railway station

When you exit the station, you have the bus stop in front of you. You have to take the bus number
33. The trip takes about 10 minutes. The direction of travel with respect to the station exit is towards
the right. The number 33 bus goes on with the "Viali": you have to get off at the "Liceo Righi" bus
stop. You can buy tickets on board of almost all the buses ( €1.50). You may also purchase them
both at "tobacco shops" that display the big "T" shield outside, at news-stand and TPER points

Walking from the city center

From the city center (Piazza Maggiore), you walk through Via D'Azeglio, since you get to the cross-
road between Via de' Carbonesi and Via Farini. Now you go on with Via de' Carbonesi, Via Collegio
di Spagna and Via Saragozza. Once you arrive in Piazza di Porta Saragozza, cross it and go on
with Via Saragozza. On your left there is Viale Risorgimento, a street with an ascent (on your left
there are the Cassarini' Gardens). The School of Engineering and Architecture is located on the top
of the ascent.

Taxi Cabs are usually available on call (+39-051-372727) or at the railway station, in Piazza
Maggiore and at Porta Saragozza. Taxi travel to/from airport takes 20-25min depending on traffic
conditions. BLQ bus connects directly airport and railway station.
