LNG source term models for hazard analysis

A review of the state-of-the-art and an approach to model assessment
In 2006, the Health and Safety Laboratory (HSL) undertook a research project to develop tools for the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) Liquefied Natural Gas Technical Committee to evaluate liquefied natural gas (LNG) dispersion models. The work was commissioned by the Fire Protection Research Foundation (FPRF) and delivered a Model Evaluation Protocol (Ivings et al., 2007) which included a checklist of model evaluation criteria and a structure for complete model evaluation. A partial evaluation of some common current dispersion models was also carried out. Subsequently, FPRF let a subcontract to HSL to create a database of full scale experimental trials and wind tunnels tests which can be used to validate LNG dispersion models. This work has recently been completed.
