DNV GL Debuts New Explosion Hazard Software

By Maritime Reporter & Engineering News
Wednesday, February 26, 2014

DNV GL’s new Phast 3D Explosions software module enables advanced 3D modeling, increasing both the accuracy and detail of the evaluations as well as information about the speed of vapor cloud explosion (VCE) analyses.

 

Phast software is used to model safety aspects of design options for proposed new facilities and for operational changes in existing facilities. The software examines the progress of a potential incident from the initial release of hazardous substances to far-field dispersion including flammable and toxic effects. The analyses take numerous parameters into consideration including variables such as wind direction and speed.

The 3D modeling functionality in the Phast 3D Explosions module allows you to complete a more realistic and more detailed evaluation of explosion hazards and the blast potential using either the Multi-Energy or the Baker-Strehlow-Tang explosion model,” said Nic Cavanagh, Director of Operations for Risk and Reliability, Software, DNV GL.

Phast 3D Explosions can be used in a number of applications, including occupied building analysis, facility siting, escalation assessment, plant layout optimization, determination of design accidental loads on structures and equipment, definition of exclusion zones and in demonstrating regulatory compliance.

Key features of Phast 3D Explosions software: detailed vapor cloud explosion (VCE) modeling; development of combined hazard contours; and consideration of directional effects. www.dnvgl.com
