KFX/EXSIM is specifically developed for safety-related applications, addressing scenarios such as gas dispersion, fires, explosions, and other industrial challenges. Its features include the porosity technique, Lagrangian model for droplet releases, the ability to handle multiple simultaneous releases in a single model, and seamless integration with Finite Element software for structural response analysis.
Extensive usage and testing in numerous industry studies, both by DNV and external customers, have established KFX as a robust and stable simulator. Furthermore, the software has been developed in close collaboration with industry partners to best understand and address industrial needs efficiently and accurately. Notably, ongoing advancements include an advanced liquid CO2 release model that accounts for complex thermodynamics, two-phase releases, dry-ice formation and deposition, as well as obstacles, terrain, and wind conditions.
