Title A model for pool spreading and vaporisation and its implementation in the computer code G*A*S*P
Bibliographic information HMSO Books, P.O. Box 276, London SW8 5DT, United Kingdom, Sep. 1990. 47p. Illus. 28 ref. Price: GBP 6.00.
Abstract This report presents a mathematical model of the spreading and vaporisation of a hazardous liquid pool. The model can be used to predict the rate of cloud formation and so contribute to a hazard or risk analysis. Sample outputs from the computer code GASP (Gas Accumulation over Spreading Pools) are provided to illustrate specific features of the model.
