Abstract
Huge amounts of hazardous materials are transported by rail and road, being from time to time involved in traffic accidents. In these cases, flammable materials such as, for example, LPG, can originate a severe accident if a loss of containment takes place: a BLEVE explosion usually followed by a fireball. This type of accident, which often follows the domino effect sequence of fire¿explosion, has caused the death of many people, including firefighters and spectators, the mechanical and thermal...
