THE DISSEMINATION AND COMBUSTION OF UNCONFINED LIQUEFIED NATURAL GAS CLOUDS

A series of experimental tests were performed in the field to: (1) explosively disseminate liquefied natural gas (LNG) to form an unconfined cloud of measurable size and shape; (2) transfer a detonation wave from a different chemical cloud, but one known to support detonation, into an LNG cloud; and (3) observe and measure the effects of the transferred detonation wave in the unconfined LNG cloud. Based on the results of these feasibility tests, additional experiments are recommended.
