Scenario Modeling Software Improves Emergency Planning

Aug. 1, 2014
SAFER Systems released the latest version of its consequence analysis software.

SAFER Systems released version 10.2 of its advanced consequence analysis software, SAFER TRACE.  SAFER TRACE is engineering grade software used by industrial professionals and risk managers to help assess, understand and reduce chemical risk, and plan for worst case scenarios.  The 10.2 version of SAFER TRACE contains several new features, enhancements to existing capabilities, streamlined workflows and bug fixes.

Key among the new features and enhancements are improved vapor cloud explosion modeling for materials such as ethylene oxide, and solid chemical explosion modeling capability for materials such as ammonium nitrate, and commercial explosives like TNT.

New to SAFER TRACE v10.2, exfiltration modeling allows plans to be created for indoor accidental releases and can calculate how long the toxicity is expected to remain at harmful levels throughout an indoor chemical release event.  This model takes into consideration the room size, temperature, and ventilation type and rate to determine the toxic or explosive concentration as well as the exposure curve from point of release to end of event where safe levels are reached.
