Abstract
The report presents the results of a research contract undertaken during the summer of 1989 to model the turbulent dispersion of the vapours resulting from the instantaneous release of volatile liquids into the atmosphere in order to assess the hazards posed by such releases to general population centers within a radius of 50 km of the release point. Of particular interest are the 1986 CAVA trials for which meteorological data and release details were supplied by Defence Research Establishment Suffield, Ralston, Alberta. The rationale for the representation of release conditions, meteorological conditions and the model used and its validation are presented in Chapter I and Appendix 1. There follows in Chapter II a description of the framework that is used to assess the model results and in Chapter III a dicussion of the computational techniques employed in deriving these statistics.
