In this paper, the consequence analysis has been evaluated for the damage effects of the LPG storage tanks when they are installed on the ground or underground. They should be performed to identify measures to reduce risks for the LPG storage tanks which are more widely used. In order to conduct a damage effect evaluation of the LPG storage tanks installed underground, FDS was used to simulate the LPG storage tanks installed and housed within a facility. The maximum pressure of the storage facilities for the LPG storage tanks has been calculated from the FDS, and it's results are used as an input variable for Phast which is a commercial software for evaluating the damage effects. Getting results from the consequence analysis and computational simulations(diffusion range of LFL and UFL, jet fire or explosions) were quantitatively presented for the damage effects.
