CFD Validation Against Large Scale Liquified Helium Release


The ADREA-HF CFD code is validated against a large scale liquefied helium release experiment on flat ground performed by INERIS in the past. The predicted release and dispersion behavior is evaluated against the experimental using temperature time histories at sensors deployed at various distances and heights downstream the source. For the selected sensors the temperature predictions are generally in good agreement with the experimental with a tendency to under-predict temperature as the source is approached.
