TOPIC: Flaring and Venting

The EUB released a new draft of its flaring and venting regulations (Guide 60) in January 2003 and solicited feedback from stakeholders. The EUB is currently reviewing the feedback and is aiming to release a Final Draft in February 2004.

Michael Brown of the EUB will speak to the feedback received and possible changes being considered by the EUB for the Final Draft.

Guide 60 generates a lot of attention and many questions - Attendees will have the opportunity to hear about potential changes first-hand, and have a chance to pose questions to the person in charge of these regulations.

Presented by: Dr. Stephen B. Murray

The Military Engineering Section at Defence Research and Development Canada Suffield (DRDC-S) has been conducting research and development in explosives and their effects, for defensive purposes, for several decades. Dr. Murray will provide an overview of the wide variety of past and present R&D programs conducted at DRDC-S. The main topics of the presentation will include:

a. Applied studies that focus on the development of hardware that utilize detonation processes to achieve defensive military objectives, such as minefield breaching and the demolition of structures.

b. The effects of blast waves on structures and humans.
c. Fundamental studies aimed at understanding the initiation and propagation of detonation waves in vapour clouds, foams and solid explosives.

Dr. Murray is an internationally renowned expert in shock/blast physics with many inventions and patents to his credit. The presentation will include numerous video clips from trials conducted on the DRDC-S Experimental Proving Grounds. This promises to be a very fascinating evening.
