Our Capabilities

ESR Technology’s state-of-the-art models are routinely used to provide the best possible analysis for our clients. They cover:

  • Dense gas dispersion & two-phase jet dispersion (DRIFT)
  • Liquid pool spreading and evaporation (GASP)
  • Multi-component pool spreading and vaporisation for water reactive substances (STAWaRS)
  • Jet fire effects (TORCH 3D)
  • Pool fire effects (PFIRE)
  • Plant explosion effects (EXPEL)
  • Fire engulfment and structural heat up (ENGULF)
  • Toxic and Flammable Gas Ingress Analysis (CONGRESS)

For many assessments, these models are integrated with our in-house risk assessment suite (RIFLE) to provide overall measures of risk.

When appropriate, we also use state-of-the-art proprietary software such as:

  •  GEXCON’s FLACS™ Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) model for 3-D assessment of vapour cloud explosions and gas dispersion in major hazard facilities
  • NIST’s FDS™ CFD model for 3-D assessment of fires and smoke movement in buildings
  • DNV’s process hazard analysis software Phast™ and Safeti™
  • CERC’s ADMS™ for modelling flare and vent dispersion
