Five additional assessment models have been developed to delineate the hazards caused by chemicals with specific properties when they are accidentally released in different environmental conditions. These models describe the sinking, spreading and dissolution of heavy liquids in a river, dissolution of heavier than water low boiling point liquids released underwater, spreading on water of continuously released oil and cryogenic liquids, and the release of chemicals that react with water. The heating by fire and consequent rupture of propylene barge tanks is also investigated.
