Master Explosion Dynamics with SuperChems™

In this presentation, Dr. Georges A. Melhem reveals fundamental Process Safety Office® SuperChems™ explosion building blocks and models that address many of the flaws of simplified sizing methods. Included are case studies of how they are applied and how the burning rate models are developed from measured data.

  • Equilibrium calculations for multiphase and hybrid systems to represent the flame font
  • Single volume deflagration dynamics
  • Rankine-Hugoniot modeling to develop reduced analytical models for 1D dynamics
  • Detailed 1D explosion dynamics
