The volume “Principles of Forensic Engineering applied to Industrial Accidents”, with the prestigious publishing house John Wiley & Sons (UK), is due to be published soon.
The international volume was prepared by Luca Fiorentini (Executive Director of TECSA S.r.l.) and by Luca Marmo (Polytechnic of Turin, MFCForensic).
Below is a description of the volume and authors as it appears on the Google Books website, on which the work, on an international level, has already been cataloged.
An introduction to the accident of an accident or to accident. The implications of the immediate causes of the underlying factors that affected, amplified, or modified the events in terms of consequences, evolution, dynamics, etc., as well as the contribution of an eventual human error. This book is a concise and introductory volume to the forensic engineering disciplines which supports the reader in the global strategy of learning from accidents (or near-misses). The reader will benefit from a single point of access to this very large, technical literature that can be only understood with the right terms, definitions, and links in mind. Keywords: Presents simple (real) cases, each of them investigated within the same framework; Gives the readers the bibliography to access more in-depth specific aspects; An overview of the most commonly used methodologies and techniques to investigate accidents, including the evidence that should be collected to define the cause, dynamics appropriate chain of security. Principles of Forensic Engineering Applied to Industrial Accidents is essential reading for researchers and practitioners in forensic engineering, as well as graduate students in forensic engineering departments and other professionals.
Professor Luca Fiorentini is an internationally recognized expert in the field of industrial, process safety and fire engineering. He is owner and CEO of TECSA S.r.l. international consulting company working in the field of loss prevention and industrial safety, fire engineering and environmental protection. He is senior process safety, HSE, fire engineering and reliability consultant. Professor Fiorentini has experience in QRA (Hazop, LOPA, FTA, ETA, Consequence analysis), CFD and FEM methods, RAM analysis and industrial risk assessment for industries: major hazard industries, refineries, chemical and petrochemical plants, liquid hydrocarbons and LPG storage farms, oil and gas onshore installations and offshore platforms, steelworks plants, food processing facilities, pharmaceuticals and fine chemicals production plants, hospitals and health care facilities, ports and piers. He is an expert in fire engineering and fire risk assessment. Fiorentini is a forensic engineer and investigator for fires, explosions and industrial and marine accidents. He is the author of several books, articles and conference papers as well as a reviewer for a number of scientific magazines. He is also a professional member of the Chartered Society of Forensic Sciences (UK) and an editorial board member of “Intl. Journal of Forensic Engineering “and” Fire Protection Magazine “(SFPE).
Professor Luca Marmo is a researcher at the Polytechnic University of Turin, technical chairman, chairman of the chair of the Safety of the Industrial Processes on the Chemical Engineering course, and director of the Experimental Center for the Explosive Atmosphere Safety at the Politecnico di Torino Scientific Activity. He has been investigating more than one hundred industrial and civil accidents, mainly fires and explosions. Production of microorganisms and biomolecules of industrial interest, valorisation of wastes and industrial by-products, and production of microorganisms and enzymes applied in toxic compounds biodegradation processes. CFR modeling of gas-solid multiphase reactors, and experimental activity on the valorisation of wastes. 60 papers on international journals or presented at conferences, in the field of industrial safety and accident prevention.
