About this event

The presentation will start with an overview of the safety issues related to some emerging energy technologies, focusing in particular on hydrogen, carbon capture and storage (CCS), wind and solar energy, and liquefied natural gas. This will be followed by snapshots of some research activities including:

  • Numerical study of accidental releases from pressurised carbon dioxide pipelines
  • Pipeline decompression and atmospheric dispersion of the released carbon dioxide
  • Large scale liquefied natural gas (LNG) fires
  • Spontaneous ignition in pressurised hydrogen release, hydrogen jet fires and explosion

About the speaker

Following a PhD from the University of London in 1988, Jennifer Wen spent 5 years in industry, firstly with CD-ADAPCO (vendor of STAR-CD) and then British Gas before going back to academia in 1998. She established and currently leads the Centre for Fire and Explosion Studies at Kingston University. The Centre now has 4 academic staff and 16 researchers working on a broad range of topics related to cross-cutting safety issues related to energy and the built environment. From 1 May 2013, she will join the University of Warwick as Professor of Engineering.
