LNG dispersion

When LNG accidentally escapes its containment, a pool is usually considered to form, which provides, by means of spread and vaporisation, a source of a flammable heavy gas cloud. MPflow can be used for detailed simulations of LNG releases in the atmosphere in case of an accident like a rupture in a pipeline system or a crack in a storage vessel, valve e.t.c. Both low or high-pressure releases, on/off-shore spills can be modelled using specialised numerical methods for the investigating the associated complex phenomena.
