When an accidental release of a hazardous material is considered within a safety case or risk assessment, its off-site effects are generally assessed by calculating the dispersion of vapour from the site. Although most installations handling flammable materials will be in the open air, many types of plant, particularly those handling toxics, are enclosed,(More)
Several low boiling point materials are stored in closed vessels at ambient temperature, using their own vapour pressure to maintain a liquid state. These materials are often toxic, flammable, or both, and thus any uncontrolled release can have potentially disastrous consequences. There are many ways in which an accidental release can occur, the most severe(More)

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS The authors gratefully acknowledge many helpful comments and suggestions made on this guidance This document provides best practice guidance in the application of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to the design and assessment of ventilation and gas dispersion in gas turbine (GT) enclosures. The focus is from a safety perspective. Gas(More)
