Developed and validated a series of solvers within the frame of open source computational fluid dynamics (CFD) code OpenFOAM ® for a variety of safety related reactive and non-reactive flows, including:
2) DDT-FOAM for predicting flame acceleration and transition from deflagration to detonation
3) CylinderFOAM for predicting the response of high-pressure cylinders under fire attack
4)LNG-FOAM for predicting pool spread, evaporation and dispersion following LNG spill on land/water, rollover in LNG tanks, flashing cryogenic jets, vapour cloud formation from LNG/other liquid fuel cascade and LNG pool fires.
5) LibFOAM, an electro-thermal model to capture the evolution of lithium ion batteries from normal operation, abuse condition to thermal runaway
6) In-house version of FireFOAM with specially developed sub-models for combustion, soot and radiative heat transfer in fire simulations as well as dynamic predictions of mass burning rate of liquid pool fires
7) CFD-DECOM for predicting the decompression characteristics of rich gas and dense phase carbon dioxide (CO2) following pipeline rupture in the context of carbon capture and storage (CCS).
8) CO2FOAM for predicting the atmospheric dispersion of the released CO2 for CCS applications.
9) CFD-GLAZ for predicting the response of glazing systems in elevated temperature.
