What is Phast 6.7 and why you should use it for consequence analysis
Phast 6.7 is a software solution for modelling discharge, dispersion, fires, explosions and toxic effects of a wide range of loss of containment scenarios. It is a globally adopted solution that has been developed and validated by industry experts for over 40 years. It is used by more than 10,000 users across 1,000 organizations to control their hazards and optimize their design, process and safety.
In this article, we will explain what Phast 6.7 can do for you, how it works and what are some of its key features and benefits.
What can Phast 6.7 do for you
Phast 6.7 can help you to:
Analyze the consequences of various loss of containment scenarios, such as pressure vessels, storage tanks, pipework and pipelines.
Model the effects of discharge, dispersion, fires, explosions and toxic exposure on people, environment and assets.
Provide input to your hazard identification, risk assessment and emergency planning processes.
Optimize your design and operation to reduce the likelihood and severity of accidents.
Meet your regulatory and industry standards and obligations.
Communicate your results and recommendations to your customers or stakeholders using graphs, reports and 3D visualization.
How does Phast 6.7 work
Phast 6.7 works by using a combination of empirical models, physical models and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) models to simulate the behavior of fluids and gases in different scenarios. It takes into account various factors such as source characteristics, release conditions, weather data, terrain data, geometry data and mitigation measures. It then calculates the extent and severity of the consequence effects such as jet fires, pool fires, flash fires, vapor cloud explosions, blast waves, thermal radiation, flammable and toxic concentrations and doses.
Phast 6.7 has a user-friendly interface that allows you to easily create and edit scenarios, run simulations and view results. You can also customize your settings and parameters to suit your specific needs and preferences. You can also export your results to Word or Excel for further analysis or reporting.
What are some of the key features and benefits of Phast 6.7
Some of the key features and benefits of Phast 6.7 are:
It supports a wide range of scenarios and effects, giving you a comprehensive solution for consequence analysis.
It has been extensively validated against experimental data and real-world incidents, giving you confidence in its accuracy and reliability.
It has been continuously updated with the latest research and developments in the field of consequence modelling, giving you access to the most advanced technology and methods.
It has extensions for advanced modelling of complex mixtures (Multi-Component), explosions in three dimensions (Explosions) and impact of 3D geometries (CFD), giving you more flexibility and accuracy for your specific problems.
It has a flexible licensing system that allows you to choose between individual or network plans, local or virtual installation and short-term or long-term access, giving you more convenience and affordability for your usage.
Phast 6.7 is a powerful software solution for consequence analysis that can help you to control your hazards by knowing the consequences. It can help you to optimize your design, process and safety by providing you with accurate and reliable information on the potential effects of various loss of containment scenarios. It can also help you to communicate your results and recommendations to your customers or stakeholders using graphical, tabular or 3D formats.
