Title Experiments and modelling: An overview with particular reference to fire engulfment
Bibliographic information 1988, Vol.20, p.149-175. Illus. 33 ref.
Abstract This paper discusses general modelling and experimental requirements, various modelling approaches currently used and model validation in the light of available data. The consequences and physical processes involved in losses of containment of pressurised liquefied gases are also discussed. Computer models for assessing the consequences of fire on LPG type storage vessels are reviewed along with experimental data currently available for model validation purposes.
