Application of large-scale testing to the design of an emergency relief system. A.J. Starkie. Paper No. 39. Proc. Symp., Major hazards onshore and offshore 2, pages537--48. (See abstract 1922 for complete reference).
The results are reported of a vent-sizing assessment involving the drying of a thermally sensitive fine chemical. The findings of this emergency relief system sizing exercise indicated that the classical DIERS sizing techniques for two-phase flow from a gassy system was over-conservative when used in drying operations. Also it was shown that a substantial reduction in the vent area was achievable, based on experimental data obtained from large-scale simulation of the relief process. 5 refs.
