Bibliographic information HSE Books, P.O. Box 1999, Sudbury, Suffolk CO10 6FS, United Kingdom, 1996. v, 36p. 4 ref. Price: GBP 15.00.
Abstract This report describes the development of a procedure for the evaluation of technical models and the application of the procedure to models for the prediction of smoke and gas ingress on offshore structures. Four models, representing four generic types, were evaluated: empirical, phenomenological, computational fluid dynamics, and physical models. The models are compared and general conclusions concerning their suitability in the present context are discussed.
