Development and experimental validation of a novel CFD approach for the simulation of high-pressure accidental gas releases (2023)
Supervisors: Prof. Andrea Carpignano
Keywords: Quantitative Risk Assessment, high-pressure gas release, CFD, ANSYS Fluent, experimental validation, wind tunnel
Study on the Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) modeling of accidental scenarios in complex industrial plants for safety assessment purposes. Development of a novel CFD approach called Source Box Accident Model (SBAM), targeted for the simulation of high-pressure gas releases in congested geometries. Study on the integration of machine learning algorithms within the CFD model for computational cost reduction purposes. Experimental activities for the model validation through scaled wind tunnel tests.
