Abstract

Early in the morning on October the 7th 1991, the town of Nantes (Westem France) was shaken by a deflagration. This vapour cloud explosion (VCE) occurred m a petroleum depot. This was not the first accident in such a configuration but, probably in France, the one which produced the most extensive damage to the surroundings. For instance, numerous windowpanes were broken in a 2 kilometer radius.
