Dust explosions always claim lives and cause huge financial losses. Dust explosion risk can be prevented by inherently safer design or mitigated by engineering protective system. Design of explosion prevention and protection needs comprehensive knowledge and data on the process, workshop, equipment, and combustible materials. The knowledge includes standards, expertise of experts, and practical experience. The database includes accidents, dust explosion characteristics, inherently safer design methods, and protective design methods. Integration of such a comprehensive knowledge system is very helpful. The developed system has the following functions: risk assessment, accident analysis, recommendation of prevention and protection solution, and computer aided design of explosion protection. The software was based on Browser/Server architecture and was developed using mixed programming of ASP.Net and Prolog. The developed expert system can be an assistant to explosion design engineers and safety engineers of combustible dust handling plants.
