Analysis of vapor barrier experiments to evaluate their effectiveness as a means to mitigate HF concentrations: final report
Accidental releases of Hydrogen Fluoride (HF) can result in initially dense, highly reactive and corrosive gas clouds. These clouds will typically contain a mixture of gases, aerosols and droplets which can be transported significant distances before lower hazard levels of HF concentration are reached. Containment fences or vapor barriers have been proposed as a means to hold-up or delay cloud expansion, elevate the plume downwind of the barriers, and enhance cloud dilution. Previous related field and laboratory experiments have been analyzed to estimate the effectiveness of barrier devices. The ...
