Title: Novel application of quantitative risk assessment modelling to a continuous fermenter
Author: Patil, Rohit A.
Issue Date: 2006
School/Discipline: School of Chemical Engineering
Abstract: In food and pharmaceutical industries plant failure can be costly and sometimes catastrophic to public health. This thesis uses the notion of Friday 13th Syndrome, ie. the unexpected failure of a well-operated plant, to develop a new and rigorous mathematical model of a generalised, continuous fermenter to gain insight into the likelihood of bioprocess failure. This new model is developed for a continuous, anaerobic fermenter based on widely employed Monod process model.
