Title: White Paper on Consequence Assessment of Transport of Hazardous Materials for PHMSA

Abstract

This document describes a proposed methodology for assessing the consequences of accidents during transport of hazardous materials in the form of compressed gases as liquids in the United States. A quantitative population effect risk metric for a transport plan in terms of population numbers and effects is described. Quantitative results provide the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) a means for evaluating routes, times, and other plans for material movement. Hazard releases are modeled with a consequence assessment tool maintained by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) that uses the Second-Order Closure Integrated Puff (SCIPUFF) atmospheric transport and dispersion model. LandScanTM 2016 USA Day and Night distributions are used for population data.
