SUMMARY OF LNG SAFETY RESEARCH: SUPPLEMENT - TASK III
Results from major published research programs related to assessment and alleviation of potential LNG hazards are described. Topics covered include: vaporization and dispersion from LNG spills, boiling heat transfer rates for LNG on water, superheat 'explosions,' tank stratification and rollover, thermal radiation from LNG pool fires, detonation conditions, pool spread and thermal radiation from ignited LNG releases on water, deflagration of natural gas - air vapor clouds, and LNG fire control and suppression research. In addition to descriptive material, an extensive bibliography is included and future research needs are suggested.
