  • A numerical study on the wind effect on the oil containment by boom

    We numerically investigate the effect of wind on the oil containment by boom. The numerical simulations are carried out by using commercial computational fluid dynamics software, FLUENT with Volume of Fluid method. A boom containment of high viscosity oil in real scale is simulated, where the lengths of boom and simulated domain size are practical. It is found that the effect of wind becomes significant above the threshold velocity of 10 m/s. At wind velocity of 35 m/s, the leakage rate is twice larger than the leakage rate at 0 m/s.

  • Numerical Experimental Set-Up of Oil Containment by Rigid Floating Boom in Wave

    Based on the Navier-Stokes equations for viscous, incompressible fluid and VOF method, the numerical experiment platform of oil containment by rigid floating boom in wave is established, utilizing the commercial CFD software FLUENT, and the waves are generated by defining the velocity of water particle on the inlet boundary. The volume of fluid (VOF) model is used to distinguish the three immiscible fluids (air, oil and water) and to track the interface between them. In this paper, a second order Stokes-wave with the relative wave height of 0.16 is selected as the incoming wave to simulate the shape of the oil slick and analyze the oil containment by rigid floating boom under this wave. The numerical simulation of the oil containment of the spilled oil on the sea under wave conditions is achieved. Numerical results of oil containment by boom in wave agree well with the corresponding researches and the real conditions. Compared to the traditional physics model experiment, the numerical experiment platform can be carried out with the advantages of low cost, easy reconstruction, unlimited to the model scale, high measuring accuracy and so on. It is shown that the present numerical platform is effective, reliable and accurate and can be applied to simulate the oil containment by booms in wave conditions.

  • Atlas transmission line/transition design and fabrication status

    Atlas is a pulsed-power facility under development at Los Alamos National Laboratory to drive high-energy density experiments. Design has been completed for this new generation pulsed-power machine consisting of an azimuthal array of 24, 240-kV Marx modules and transmission lines supplying current to the load region at the machine center. The transmission line consists of a cable header, load protection switch, and tri-plate assembly interfacing to the center transition section. The cable header interface to the Marx module provides a mechanism to remove the Marx module for maintenance without removing other components of the transmission line. The load protection switch provides a mechanism for protecting the load during charging of the Marx in the event of a pre-fire condition. The aluminum tri-plate is a low-inductance transmission line that carries radial current flow from the Marx energy storage system at the machine periphery toward the load. All transmission line components are oil insulated except the solid-dielectric insulated power flow channel connected directly to the load. The transition region at the machine center consists of several components that enable the radial converging vertical transmission lines to interface to a horizontal disk/conical power flow channel delivering current to the load. The current carrying transition components include the high-voltage and ground conductors interfacing to the tri-plate transmission lines. The tri-plate tank attachment ring interfaces to the tri-plate tanks and the base-plate. The base-plate supports the transition components and interfaces to the center support structure of the machine. The bottom insulator also attaches to the base-plate and to the high-voltage conductor, providing an oil containment seal between the transition and vacuum vessel, Design has been completed for all Atlas components. Some prototype hardware fabrication has been completed and first article hardware is in various stages of completion. The first article is a single line of the machine and includes a Marx module, cable header, load protection switch, tri- plate transmission line, and a dump load for testing. Testing is in progress on some prototype and first article components to verify performance before production begins on critical system components. Production will soon begin for much of the overall system, including the Marx tanks, tri-plate tanks, support structure, some transition components, and the personnel platform. These components will be fabricated and installed while the remaining internal components are being fabricated.

  • Feasibility of Water Spray Barriers as Fireproof Oil Slick Containment Devices

    The successful use of a water spray barrier as a heat shield in conjunction with a conventional boom for in-situ burning of oil slicks is described. Further laboratory test programs to evaluate the oil containment capabilities of a "fixed" water spray barrier are elaborated. Results of testing the device in currents, winds and waves along with its performance in cold environments, are presented. It is concluded that the fixed spray barrier tested is capable of performing satisfactorily in environments specified for conventional booms.

  • Using an USV for Automatic Deployment of a Boom Around a Ship: Simulation and Scale Experiment

    The paper explores the automatic deployment of oil containment booms around ships, using an unmanned surface vehicle (USV). The task of the USV is boom towing following adequate trajectories. A standard scenario would be ships moored to a dock, although it also could be open sea. The target is to prevent leakage escape during crude transfers, or any other contaminant. Surrounding ships with booms is becoming a common practice. The main result of the research is to confirm that this automatic deployment can be done, according with a suitable USV planning. To justify this conclusion, a combined effort of simulation and experiments has been done. A mathematical model of the boom dynamics has been developed, and used for the development of a simulation tool. This tool is employed for operation planning, and for estimation of forces and other aspects. Experiments have been done with a scale USV and boom, with satisfactory results. The paper describes the models and the experiments. Some recommendations are deduced from our first results.

  • Containment of oil spills

    One of the most common forms of pollution at sea is oil. Oil spills may result from an accident at sea, a fire on an oil production platform, a collision of two tankers, or a tanker with another ship, accidental rupture of pipes carrying oil, washing of tankers at sea, etc. After an oil spill occurs at sea, it must be contained to prevent it from traveling toward the shore and being washed on beaches or entering the estuaries. Two methods of oil containment at sea are reviewed, the pneumatic and mechanical barriers.
