Abstract

In the framework of the evaluation of the dense gas dispersion code ADREA- HF the experiments No. 16 and 17 of the FLADIS Project have been computa- tionally simulated. The experiments concerned continuous jet releases of liqui- fied ammonia and subsequent dispersion over flat terrain in real scale. The computed concentrations are compared to the experimental at the exact loca- tions of the sensors, after the steady-state plume is established. A statistical analysis is performed in order to evaluate the bias in the model predictions and the spread of the individual values around the mean bias, as fu
