Hi all,

Im currently working on a project, which with legislation requires us to offer explosion protection on the ducting, as Methane will be in the air mixture.

Im looking at ways to visually model this.

Can anyone offer any guidance or help on whether this is able to be displayed in a CFD package.

A company I used to work for, Applied Research, is/was doing a lot of research on blast effects. You could look at the website and, I believe, it was the San Antonio office that was doing the work. I know they had a simulation code written. They might be able to give you some direction.
