Jet noise effects during accidents

An accidental hydrocarbon relese on an offshore platform can generate high intensity noise. This noise may induce vibration in surrounding equipment. Such vibration could result in equipment damage which could increase the severity of an accident. This report examines the impact of noise on platform structures in order to assess its relevance to the overall consequences of the accident.
