The leakage of the fuel gases can results in the dispersion of fuel gases in air and it will lead to explosion. The physical properties of fuel gases (odorless and colorless) are often become a threat to the industries. This project aim to study the pattern of transient dispersion behavior mixture of fuel gases when mixed with air in 3D simulation. By understanding on the properties and the pattern of dispersion behavior can had an early detection and is easily to prevent major accident if there is any fuel gas leakage. Mitigation guidelines can be developed from this simulation to prevent any major accident in the industries. The binary mixture of the fuel gases such as methane, hydrogen, ethane, propane, butane, carbon monoxide and acetylene had taken into account in this project. The simulation is performed in 3D enclosed geometries of a cylinder. Various transient behavior of binary mixtures are simulated using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD).
