LUNCHTIME WEBINAR - 16th SEPTEMBER 2020

We are pleased to inform you that our next FABIG Lunchtime Webinar will cover 'On the modelling of gas explosions: A historical review' and will be given by Kees van Wingerden, Gexcon on 16th September 2020 from 13.00 BST.

For additional information and registration, please go to the Events section of the website.

Abstract:

This webinar will cover attempts that have been made through the years to model the effects (especially overpressure and drag) of gas explosions in congested areas starting more or less from the mid-seventies during the aftermath of the Flixborough vapour cloud explosion until now. The models that will be addressed include models describing the blast generated by vapour cloud explosions up to advanced models such as CFD-models aiming at describing the processes occurring during the interaction between combustion and combustion generated flow fields and turbulence within congested areas such as offshore modules and refineries. Whereas the main aim of the development of the models was to be able to predict the consequences of explosions, some of the models can also be used to design mitigation measures beyond the strengthening of critical safety elements.

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 still looking for presentations for our series of lunchtime Webinars and as such, please do not hesitate to contact us at fabig@steel-sci.com if you or one of your colleagues would like to give a presentation at one of the forthcoming FABIG Lunchtime Webinars.

Take care and stay safe,

The FABIG Team
