Engineering Simulation Solutions for the Oil and Gas Industry - Gas Dispersion and Smoke AnalysisDuration: 60 minutes
As part of the safety requirements for operating offshore platforms, a safety case which quantifies all of the risks of has to be submitted. In order to quantify the risks of explosion and fire, gas dispersion and ventilation tests have to be carried out. Full scale tests are both expensive and impractical and scale physical model tests have their limitations. With the increasing affordability of powerful computing and advances in software, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) has now become the most realistic choice.
