    Can Solidworks be used for performing gas cloud dispersion in a refinery?

    Juan Calderon

      I would like to simulate the effect of a loss of containment from pipes, vessels, equipment, etc in an open space like for example a refinery. Specifically y would like to know how a gas cloud could be dispersed taking into account the atmospheric conditions (wind speed, direction, atmospheric stability), and the plant layout (I have a 3D model of the plant in ACAD). Is it possible to perform this kind of simulation with Solidworks considering the specific fluid properties and the release rate?.
