Plan View of Toxic Gas Dispersion in an Idealised Industrial Environment Using HazRes' CFD Code.

HazRes has developed its own gas dispersion Computational Fluid Dyanmic (CFD) model to provide accurate and cost-effective gas dispersion simulation and analysis services to its clients. HazRes’ gas dispersion CFD model can be used for both safety and environmental impact scenario support. The three-dimensional (3D) model is adapted to atmospheric flow and dispersion simulation and is capable of handling complex geometry and complex physics.

Dispersion Analysis to Determine Touchdown on a Hill from Varying Height & Diameter Exhaust Stacks using HazRes' CFD Code.

HazRes’ CFD codes enable us to model coupled physical processes and systems, including but not limited to:

  • External and internal dispersion analysis, such as smoke, impurities, recirculation efficiencies and flammable, toxic, chemical, biological and radiological threats.
  • Process-related modelling, including coupled computational fluid dynamics (CFD), transport of mass and energy, chemical reactions and combustion processes.
  • Acoustic phenomena, such as noise and vibration analysis.
  • Product and application development.

HazRes’ CFD dispersion model has been used and validated against urban and industrial dispersion experimental test data as well as other software codes. The model can be used to help industrial companies & organisations analyse their Major Accidental Hazard (MAH) scenarios and confirm whether their gas detector array locations are acceptable, concerning any toxic or flammable gas releases, with more accuracy than integral models.

HazRes’ gas dispersion CFD code can also be used to determine alternative risk reduction measures, including alternative gas detector array locations and/or baffle, turbulence or redirecting/mitigating devices.

The links below provides a selection of case models that HazRes has analysed to demonstrate the capabilites of HazRes’ CFD  gas dispersion model as well as its usefulness and utility relating to urban and industrial dispersion simulation requirements.
