Vent Dispersion Analysis

In order to achieve a controlled level of safety and to comply with local Authorities’ safety requirements, vents are to be properly designed and risks related to vent dispersion are to be managed and reduced to an acceptable level.

Consequence assessment to evaluate the flammable and toxic gas dispersion during venting can be carried out with 2D modelling software.

When a highly detailed assessment is needed to take into account the facility geometry, the dispersion modelling can be performed using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software.
