Extended modelling and experimental research into gas explosions

Objective

The key objective of this project is to simultaneously improve the accuracy and establish the applicability of the existing three principal predictive techniques.

- Experimental scaling techniques since they have the potential to simulate in detail large-scale explosion behaviour in smaller scale experimental rigs
- Simple approximate theoretical tools for routine use by industrial hazard engineers.
- Models based upon Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) which provide the most practical and cost effective route for extrapolating from large-scale experiments to full-scale scenarios.


Since the greatest confidence lies in the results of large scale experiments the project aims to establish a significant large-scale data set against which the predictive methods can be evaluated. In addition it is essential to provide a substantial fundamental data set against which the relative accuracy of the various sub-models used in the theoretical techniques can be evaluated and further developed.
