Título Aerosols generated by accidents: pressurized liquid release experiments
Información bibliográfica Apr. 1984, Vol.45, No.4, p.227-230. Illus. 6 ref.
Resumen Experiments were performed in static air with a view to measuring the mass airborne as a function of source size and containment pressure. Pressurized releases with the containment breach above the liquid level were also investigated. The main conclusions are that chamber pressure is not a significant variable in aerosol generation produced by release of a pressured liquid. Source volume is not a significant variable when the rupture occurs above the liquid level. The relations and calculations obtained from this work can be used in the preparation of safety assessments and environmental impact statements for facilities and processes.
