LUNCHTIME WEBINAR - 11th NOVEMBER 2020
We are pleased to inform you that our next FABIG Lunchtime Webinar will cover 'Recent enhancements in predicting subsea dispersion of gas from blowouts and pipeline failure' and will be given by Jan Erik Olsen from SINTEF on 11th November 2020 from 13.00 GMT.
For additional information and registration, please go to the Events section of the website.
A reliable estimate of the subsea dispersion of gas is required in order to assess risks in offshore operations during an ongoing or potential subsea gas release. Historically, this has been calculated via so-called integral models, but more recently, CFD has become a powerful tool for conducting such analyses. CFD models have been in development for about 20 years. They require accurate implementation of the governing physics.
The last 10 years have seen a continued enhancement in model accuracy by implementing improved closures for turbulence, gas dissolution and more. This webinar will summarise these developments, discuss how the subsea model needs to communicate with the atmospheric model, and will provide some examples of release of natural gas and CO2.
FABIG WEBINAR SERIES
We will be organising lunchtime webinars every two weeks whilst working life remains disrupted by measures to combat the COVID-19 epidemic. Such measures either prohibit or make inadvisable large meetings such as our Technical Meetings.
We are now looking for presentations covering topics relevant to the theme 'Robust Principles for Safe Design against Fires & Explosions based on Experience' for our next Webinar Series. As such, please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you or one of your colleagues would like to give a relevant presentation.
Take care and stay safe,
