Hazardous materials releases

Numerical modelling using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis and mathematical modelling.

Our CFD team has extended expertise in simulating damage hazards developing specialised models for highly specialised applications of CFD for supporting safety cases. The main processes safety engineers need to consider for LNG source terms are categorized broadly as:

Jets (liquid and two-phase)

Pool formation

Vaporisation from within the containment

Rapid Phase Transitions

Pool spread and vaporisation

CFD modelling and analysis can be used for a range of hazards such as fire, smoke, steam and the dispersion of dangerous substances such as hydrogen is crucial in process engineering. CFD modelling may include mitigating activities such as ventilation controls and the effect of fire-fighting systems.
