The aim of this paper is to study the effectiveness of fluid curtains to mitigate the effects of accidental jets or releases of chlorine. A complete mathematical model, incorporating wind effect, was developed considering chemical and physical absorption potential of the toxic cloud by a reacting liquid curtain. The characteristics of the curtain and the evolution were deeply studied by means of replicated wind tunnel experimental runs, according to different operating parameters. A fairly good agreement was verified between the model predictions and the original experimental results here presented.

Abstract

The aim of this paper is to study the effectiveness of fluid curtains to mitigate the effects of accidental jets or releases of chlorine. A complete mathematical model, incorporating wind effect, was developed considering chemical and physical absorption potential of the toxic cloud by a reacting liquid curtain. The characteristics of the curtain and the evolution were deeply studied by means of replicated wind tunnel experimental runs, according to different operating parameters. A fairly good agreement was verified between the model predictions and the original experimental results here presented.
