Leakage, especially in confined spaces, can result in hazardous concentrations of toxic or flammable fluids. Quantifying the probability that a hazardous condition occurs is dependent upon the leakage frequency, the fluid flow rate, mixing between the leaking fluid and ambient environment, the hazardous limits for the resulting mixture, as well as the time available for mitigation measures. This paper describes a generic technique for quantifying the probability that a hazardous condition occurs, and provides an illustration of the methodology application.
