Abstract

Water curtains are used as a mitigation method to limit dispersion of vapour created after an accidental release of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG). Experiments were made at Ras Laffan Industrial City (RLIC) using full scale two-dimensional water curtains and coloured smoke as a tracer in air. Air velocities, both upstream and downstream of the water curtain were measured using ultrasonic anemometers under a variety of conditions. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) modelling of these experiments provides a direct comparison between the experimental observations and counterpart theoretical predictions.
