Print version Email story Tweet story
Application Modeling hazardous scenarios has become an essential part of engineering design for Offshore activities. Physical testing can be prohibitively expensive and in some cases impossible so modern Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) techniques are commonly used for the modeling of exhaust plume dispersion, natural and forced ventilation efficiency, flaring, toxic gas releases, fires, explosions and hazardous spills.

Conducting and interpreting simulation research requires a substantial amount of specialist knowledge and so Offshore organisations frequently outsource the task to dedicated companies.
