Advanced Analysis Completes a Fire and Gas Detector Optimisation Study

28-04-2023 Advanced Analysis has just completed another fire and gas detector optimisation study for a large onshore site in SE Asia using computational fluid dynamics.  


Methodology for the location of fire and gas detectors varies greatly between providers with some opting for a prescriptive approach which prescribes a minimum detector density. A more detailed approach involves the use of computational fluid dynamics which correctly accounts for the evolution and eventual location composition and size of the resulting gas cloud for toxic and flammable releases which are the main parameters that determine the importance of the release consequences. A large gas cloud in an unpopulated and uncongested area will have far less severe consequences that a smaller cloud in a highly congested or populated area.  Radiation contours, the main consequence of fires are also affected by the presence of obstacles and the shape and location of a jet fire which can often extend for tens of meters. Prescriptive approaches do not take account of these important criteria. Computational fluid dynamics not only accounts for the presence of obstacles, but the shape and size of pool fires and jet fires which greatly influence the consequences.


Our study was carried out using the revolutionary CFD software, exploCFD which greatly reduces the time and cost overhead of CFD studies.
