Abstract:

A mathematical model of the interaction between an evaporating liquefied natural gas spill on the ocean and the ambient water is presented. It is shown that the effect of mass addition that was neglected in previous analysis on the fluid mechanics and heat transfer of the spill is significant. A new mathematical model of the spill is proposed, approximations are discussed, and solution techniques are indicated.
