Gas Simulation Model

This simulation model is well suited for an emergency training situation

Imagine that a semi-trailer containing gas has collided in a round-about in Stavanger, a city of Norway. We can now study how the gas spreads depending on terrain, winds and buildings in the area.

The Gas Simulation model


The video illustrates of how simulation with Geographical Information System (GIS) appears in Powersim Studio GIS. 

The gas leakage is simulated based upon gas characteristics and weather information. Data about elevation within the selected area is read into the model.

After a simulation, data about where the gas is moving is fed back to the GIS system. This information can be combined with other vital information to: Alert the public within the critical area by SMS, evacuate schools, kindergartens and hospitals using the best emergency exit streets.

This model is made with Studio GIS and communicates with a GIS software called GISLine from Norkart. The GISLine product is developed in collaboration with Norkart AS and is available only in the Norwegian market.
