The most important characteristic of major chemical accidents, from a societal perspective, is their tendency to produce off-site effects. The extent and severity of the accident may significantly affect the population and the environment of the adjacent areas. Following an accident event, effort should be made to limit such effects.

This paper presents a deterministic mathematical model, which simulates the time-dependent behavior of an oil spill near coastal zones. The model solves the full set of partial-differential equations that govern transient, two-phase, turbulent flow and heat/mass transfer phenomena. It is used for predicting the consequences of hypothetical oil spills that(More)
