Evaluation of Mitigation Methods for Accidental LNG Releases. Volume 5: Using FEM3A for LNG Accident Consequence Analyses

As part of the work addressing a need for procedures to validate modeling methods proposed for definition of potential (flammable vapor cloud) hazard zones surrounding LNG storage sites, and to predict the effects on the dispersion of the presence of significant terrain features and of plant structures, this volume is a manual for using the mathematical model for LNG accident analyses..

Summary:
This topical report is one of a series (GRI-96/0396.1-5) on the development of methods for liquefied-natural-gas (LNG) vapor dispersion prediction for regulatory application. As part of the work addressing a need for procedures to validate modeling methods proposed for definition of potential (flammable vapor cloud) hazard zones surrounding LNG storage sites, and to predict the effects on the dispersion of the presence of significant terrain features and of plant structures, this volume is a manual for using the mathematical model for LNG accident analyses. It describes the methods used to prepare the FEM3A simulations reported in volumes 1 and 2 of this series and provides directions for using FEM3A to simulate field scale releases of LNG vapor from storage facilities. Required input data are specified. Numerical grid design is explained, and examples are provided for instruction. The simulations of wind tunnel experiments for model evaluation are described in detail sufficient to allow reproducing them. Examples of applications to field scale release scenarios are also provided. Appendixes contain the simulations examples.
