Rapid natural-hazard triggered technological accidents (Natech) risk analysis and mapping

RAPID-N is a web-based scientific software application for the rapid risk assessment and mapping of industrial accidents triggered by natural disasters (Natech). By using natural hazard scenario as input, it estimates the extent and probability of damage to industrial process equipment and models consequences of probable natech events (e.g. fire, explosion, chemical release) that may be triggered by the estimated damage. RAPID-N aims at facilitating natech risk assessment/mapping and enhance information sharing on natechs by providing a collaborative and open-access environment.
