Evaluation of emissions in a pressure letdown station
Giulio ZIngoni, a graduate in Environmental Engineering, performed in 2015 a study using OpenFOAM of the dispersion of emissions from a pressure letdown station for natural gas. The use of CFD allows to couple the building model with the environment close to the source, thereby providing fundamental information from the point of view of safety.
Some data were gently provided by ESTRA, a gas distribution company located in Prato, Italy. Supervision of Luigi Russo is gratefully acnkowledged.
