Jet fires in congested environment, effect of delayed ignition

Jet fires occurring in congested environment will impinge on process equipment, structural members, etc. The potential for escalation is very real if the integrity of the structure is compromised; this could be brought on by the effects of heat transfer or by the impact of high jet momentum. The situation could be further complicated if there is a delay in the ignition of the fuel, because a cloud consisting of fuel and air with a concentration in the flammable range could be formed, thus increasing the possibility of an explosion.
