SCENT - Operational assesment of toxic gas dispersion around the location of the accident/terrorist attack

Project title:

Operational assesment of toxic gas dispersion around the location of the accident/terrorist attack


Project description:

A unique software of flexible use for instant estimate and forecast of the area contaminated with toxic gases escaping during an accident or immediately after a terrorist attack will be developed for these purposes. This software can become part of the Integrated Emergency Service (IES).

Detailed topographic data of the crash site will be used as input data. These data will include information on the house-building i.e. digital model of the surface (at least in large chemical plants and their surroundings), information about the volume of storage containers and the type of leakage (immediate leakage of the entire volume/gradual leakage) and the current weather data including current short-term weather forecast. By localization of vulnerable areas, technical and human resources will be concentrated into needy areas to make IES activity the most effective.
