A method for dynamic risk assessment of thermal hazards due to runaway reactions is described by means of a tutorial and implemented to study the thermal decomposition of an organic peroxide. The analysis is based on an adiabatic experiment, providing data that can closely predict large-scale behavior. The experimental equipment used allows online monitoring of the temperature and rate of temperature of the hazardous material subject to ...
