Modelling Transformer explosions using exploCFD


10-31-2021 Advanced Analysis has completed a detailed transformer explosion study using exploCFD for a global miner in Australia. Ageing transformers can suffer faults which result in arcing. This in turn raises the temperature  in the transformer tank and results the evaporation of part of the transformer oil  raising the temperature and  pressure in the transformer until the tank undergoes rupture. This initial explosion can result in a secondary oil mist explosion which can be a powerful explosion if it occurs in a confined space such as a a building basement. The sequence of events can easily be modelled with the latest version of exploCFD. 

exploCFD v8.5 is now available for trial  free. Click on the Request a trial of exploCFD button above or the link below to give it a test drive. 

Multi-disciplinary Advanced Engineering Consultants and Software Developers.  Pioneers in Engineering Automation and Digitisation.


Advanced Analysis is an independent high tech company of multi-disciplinary advanced engineering consultants and software developers.  We are pioneers in engineering automation, digitisation and advanced modelling.


 We work in the areas of technical safety specializing in the modelling and of  fires and explosions,  accident investigations and advanced modelling of fluid-structural interaction. We also carry out consulting and develop advanced  software for engineering, scientific, and health problems for corporations   insurance companies, government agencies and other entities.


The majority of our people are PhD qualified experts in their fields.

Our team includes safety consulting engineers, medical experts and expert programmers who have worked with nearly every operator and many large engineering houses around the world  with some of the most advanced techniques currently available which invariably means faster, higher quality and lower cost for our clients. 

Doing  a parts count ? Go to ...



We specialise in fire and explosion and other accident investigations for the oil and gas sector and the chemical industries. This includes  loss of containment of toxics  (including H2S), as well as structural response to fire and explosions in the course of accident events.

Fire and Explosion CFD, Helideck and Thermal Plume 

 We have some of the best  experts in Computational Fluid Dynamics CFD for fire and explosion consequence analysis,  Thermal Plume Studies and Helideck studies. 


FEA / Vessel Calcs

Finite Element Analysis FEA and other analysis to characterise  structural response of platforms, concrete buildings and other structures to various loads including   Fires and explosions.


QRA/Parts Count, BRA, and other Safety Studies

Our Consultants have extensive experience with safety studies for both  onshore and offshore oil and gas production facilities.  Our QRA's are simply carried out faster, are more accurate and cost less because we employ the latest automated parts count methodology.
