Abstract

Consequence assessment in conventional quantitative risk assessment studies is carried out with simplified tools and conservative assumptions, leading to static worst-case representation of the magnitude associated with accidents. Computational fluid dynamic (CFD) models may constitute an advanced tool to analyze dynamic scenarios. ...
