The gas generated from the fire which is continuous until material is completely burned. We can analyze usual gas using chromatography analysis but it can not be applicated to analyze for the gas from the fire because which gas is enormously generated. Besides, chromatography analysis has the disadvantage that it can not continuously analyze the sample`s representativness, gas from the fire, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, FT-IR, has been utilized for effective combustion gas analysis method in small-scale combustion and on-line analysis has been attempted continuously. However, continuous sampling of 3.5l/min can not be representativness of sample if the gas caused by a massive fire and space. And the gas sampling is practically impossible in such a case. In this study, we attempted remote analysis while overcoming the disadvantages of the current gas analysis by using an Open-Path Infrared Analyzer without pre-treatment of the sampling. For the remote analysis, quantitative analysis method was established regarding each combustion toxic gases. And we measured the gases from the fire that occurs in the real case.

In this study, the strain energy density, stress and deformation behaviors have been analyzed as functions of a thickness and a force area of protective helmets with and without an extruder on the top of the shell structure using the finite element method. The strain energy density in which is related to the absorption capacity of an impact energy transfer is one of a key element of the helmet safety. The FEM analyzed results show that when the impulsive force of 4,540N is applied on the top surface of the helmets, the maximum stress is linearly reduced for an increased area of impact forces. But, the maximum strain energy density has been reduced for the increased force area. The reduced strain energy density may increase the impulsive forces transferred to the head and neck of helmet wearers, which may decrease the impact energy absorption safety of the helmets. In thus, it is safer design of the helmet in which has an extruded structure on the summit surface, but the modified helmet may decrease the impact energy absorption capacity.

The flash point is the lowest temperature at which there is enough concentration of flammable vapor to form an ignitable mixture with air. The flash point is a major physical property used to analyse the fire and explosion hazards of a flammable liquid solution. The flash point data for pure components are easily available in several literature. But the flash points of the flammable binary solutions appear to be scarce in the literature. The objective of this study is to measure and estimate the flash point of acetic acid-formic acid system. Cleveland open cup tester was used to measure the flash point. The experimental data were compared with the values estimated by the Raoult`s law and the optimization methods based on van Laar and Wilson equations. As a result, the estmated values by optimization methods were found to be better than those based on the Raoult`s law.

Energy industry facilities can cause fatal damage for internal industry employee as well as external general people because handling various kinds of gas and harmful substance might be spread to large scale severe accident by fire, explosion, and toxic gas leakage. In order to prevent these accidents, quantification by damage effect on structure and human is tried by using quantitative risk assessment, but it is difficult to process instantly exceptional cases and requires knowledge of expert. This paper aims to minimize exceptional cases and knowledge of expert, and present risk with human perceptible. So, we designed and developed zone-base risk analysis system that can compute risk of zone in real time at that point using database and incremental model.
