Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations are widely used in chemical plant design to analyze and optimize various aspects of the process, including fluid flow, heat transfer, mixing and reaction kinetics.
Unconfined vapor cloud explosions (UCVEs) can pose a severe threat to personnel operating in hazardous environments, resulting in costly damages and casualties if left unchecked. As such, it is of utmost importance for personnel working within these industries to be aware of the basics of UCVEs - what they are, how they occur, and most importantly, how the personnel can protect themselves from UCVEs. This blog post will look into what constitutes an UCVE and several preventative measures that may help mitigate its devastating effects.
