The global demand of liquefied natural gas (LNG) has risen rapidly in recent years. A new modelling method, direct CFD simulation method, was developed, due to the risks associated in handling, storage and transport of LNG. This method was shown to accurately model a LNG spill, pool formation and dispersion; and has been used to study the effect of (a) Impoundments, (b) Sea and air temperature and; (c) Sea and air stability.
