Integration of OpenFOAM Flow Simulation and Filament-Based Gas Propagation Models for Gas Dispersion Simulation
Proceedings of the Open Source CFD International Conference, November 4-5, 2010, Munich, Germany.
Abstract: In this paper, we present a gas dispersal simulation package which integrates OpenFOAM flow simulation and a filament-based gas propagation model to simulate gas dispersion for compressible flows with a realistic turbulence model. Gas dispersal simulation can be useful for many applications. In this paper, we focus on the evaluation of statistical gas distribution models. Simulated data offer several advantages for this purpose, including the availability of ground truth information, repetition of experiments with the exact same constraints and that intricate issue which come with using real gas sensors can be avoided. Apart from simulation results obtained in a simulated wind tunnel (designed to be equivalent to its real-world counterpart), we present initial results with time-independent and time-dependent statistical modelling approaches applied to simulated and real-world data.
