HGSYSTEM, Atmospheric Dispersion for Ideal Gases and Hydrogen Fluoride (HF)
Shell Research Limited Thornton Research Centre, Chester (England) through the OECD Nuclear Energy Agency Data Bank, Issy-les-Moulineaux, France.
FORTRAN Linux, MacOS, Windows (NEA-DB ESTS0545/01)
The hazards of hydrogen fluoride (HF) have long been recognized, and operating practices have been aimed at minimizing the possibility of a release and mitigating the effects of a release should it occur. These practices have been continually monitored and improved to maximize safety protection based on the available technical data. HGSYSTEM has been aimed at further improvements based on new technical data.
HGSYSTEM uses the following to calculate HF dispersion: HF thermodynamics, jet plume modeling, gravity spreading, and surface roughness effects.
Linux, MacOS or Linux systems. User will need a working FORTRAN compiler (M00021MNYCP00).
