Abstract
Jet and hydrocarbon fires are severe fires with the potential of creating large scale events which leads to serious accidents with both casualties and injuries. In this study, practical jet and hydrocarbon fire tests were carried out to assess standard ISO 834 based protection as well as improved passive fire protection. The tests showed that the ISO 834 protection is not sufficient. This standard protection is what is normally interpreted as a requirement from the legislation in Sweden. Consequently, a theoretical investigation was launched, which revealed that the laws and regulations in Sweden do not provide adequate jet and pool fire protection, and that there is a lack of jet fire knowledge.
