||Tests on the depressurization or blowdown of oil and gas pipelines were carried out on the Isle of Grain, United Kingdom, in 1985. Selected data from these tests were used to validate a computer program called BLOWDOWN, designed to predict depressurization effects. Data from 8 tests are presented along with results of computer simulations. The BLOWDOWN predictions were in adequate, and often good, agreement with the Isle of Grain data.
