Flashing liquids in industrial environments (FLIE)

Objective

The project aim to improve the understanding of the processes that occur in accidental flashing releases of liquids at high pressure, and to enhance the predictive capabilities of engineering tools used in hazard assessment. Flammable atmospheres contain on the order of 5-10% (hydro-carbon) gas. Such concentrations are only possible close the release. Detailed understanding of the source is required in order to obtain reliable predictions of the hazardous region. The project comprises four activities: Lab-scale experiments to improve knowledge about the release processes. The formulation of mathematical/physical models based on data from the experiments. Algorithms developed to implement the mathematical description into robust, efficient and correct simulation models. Finally, design and execution of large scale experiments to provide validation data for the developed models.
