Ian Cameron is Professor in Chemical Engineering at the University of Queensland with teaching, research, and consulting activities in process systems engineering. He has a particular interest in process modelling, dynamic simulation, and the application of functional systems perspectives to risk management, having extensive industrial experience in these areas. He continues to work closely with industry and government on systems approaches to process and risk management issues. He received his BE from the University of New South Wales (Australia) and his PhD from imperial College London. He is a Fellow of IChemE.
"A very thorough and outstanding book on a very important topic in process safety and loss prevention. Each chapter not only goes into good detail about the specific subject, but also contains a review of the chapter's contents, an excellent and extensive list of references (many of very recent vintage), and a notation list of acronyms used in the chapter. Most of the chapters have worked-out examples which can help to explain the topics discussed, as well as many useful tables and illustrative figures." --Journal of Loss Prevention in the Process Industries (2005), Stanley S.
