Abstract

Chemical industrial areas or so-called chemical clusters consist of various companies situated next to each other. Such areas are composed of hundreds of chemical installations exhibiting danger to a certain degree for initiating or continuing knock-on effects. In this paper, a methodology to model such clusters as networks and to investigate their dynamic danger behaviour is proposed. This original approach leads to a tentative strategy to optimally protect chemical industrial areas against security risks.
