Feb 28, 2012 -- BREEZE®, the market-leading air dispersion modeling software used by environmental professionals around the world, recently released a new version of its Incident Analyst modeling software. First responders and risk management planning teams use BREEZE Incident Analyst to evaluate worst-case and alternative scenarios for chemical releases, explosions, and fire threats. Industrial facilities also use BREEZE Incident Analyst to demonstrate due diligence and regulatory compliance.
Version 1.1 now includes the ability to:
- Simulate leaks and ruptures with the Vertical Jet Fire model
- Simplify model input and selection with the Source Term Wizard
- Model new source types for both surface and elevated releases
- Streamline source inputs for multiple sources
- Search, create, or modify chemicals/mixtures in the database
BREEZE Incident Analyst is easy-to-use and quick to run. Its intuitive interface guides users through required and optional inputs associated with a potential chemical release (e.g., size and position of tank rupture, shape of storage tank, spill volume, and existence of an impoundment basin), and selecting appropriate algorithms. The results can be viewed in both tabular and graphical formats (e.g., ambient concentration profile by time step, endpoint distances to user-defined levels of concern, colorful contouring, and exports to Google Earth™).
