During the nine-month period (09/2018 – 05/2019) the following objectives of the project were achieved. All the goals of work package (WP) 1 and one objective of WP2 were fulfilled according to the initial time schedule. More specifically, a comprehensive literature review was undertaken for semi-empirical (integral) and CFD models for pollutant dispersion from complex industrial facilities (e.g. tank farms). As a result, the collected material was used for the preparation of a review paper. The main goal of WP1 was to gain an insight into the performance of the models along with their capabilities and limitations. The review also helped us to select the most appropriate model for our considered cases.
Subsequently, two meetings with Motor Oil Hellas (MOH) were held for discussing the initial selection of the appropriate accident scenarios and for collecting the appropriate material (e.g. safety study, P&IDs, Emergency plans) for the considered study (first meeting). In the second meeting, I delivered the first version of a technical report regarding the assessment of large hydrocarbon tank fire scenarios in the area of oil refinery. Then, I discussed the results of my study with my mentors and highexperienced personnel from MOH in order to assess and compare the obtained results with previous studies. Currently, I gain experience with the integral code SOCRATES in order to begin the model development for the considered cases according to the time schedule and the last meeting with MOH.
