Improved flare modeling analysis for plant safety design A link developed between SimSci-Esscor's VISUAL FLOW safety system design software and DNV Software's PHASTFX flammable effects software module reportedly allows engineers in process plants to quickly and easily estimate a wide range of flammable effects during design work. VISUAL FLOW provides a tool for designing, documenting and modeling safety systems, pressure relief networks and general plant fluid-flow systems. PHASTFX contains major flammable and explosion models, including jet flame, pool fire and boiling liquid expanding vapor explosion. Regulatory agencies are challenging the process industries to verify the safety of pl
