SPREADING AND EVAPORATION OF LNG ON WATER
The prediction of vapor travel downwind from a spill of liquefied natural gas (LNG) is aided by a knowledge of the evaporating conditions. This paper extends the knowledge of these conditions for spills on water. Published data on free spills covering a size range from 2 1/4 to 4500 kg have been used to provide information on LNG spread rate, maximum pool diameter reached, and evaporation rate.
