Vented Explosion of Hydrogen/Air Mixture: An Inter Comparison Benchmark Exercise


Explosion venting is a widely used mitigation solution in the process industry to protect indoor equipment or buildings from excessive internal pressure caused by accidental explosions. However, vented explosions are very complicated to model using computational fluid dynamics (CFD). In the framework of a French working group, the main target of this investigation is to assess the predictive capabilities of five CFD codes used by five different organizations by means of comparison with recent experimental data. On this basis several recommendations for the CFD modelling of vented explosions are suggested.
