OilFlow2D is a unique software able to realistically simulate overland oil spills over complex terrain using flexible meshes
OilFlow2D simulates oil spills over land originating from pipeline or tank breaks. The model offers the fastest and most advanced finite-volume viscous flow free-surface 2D engine based on unstructured flexible meshes to handle oil flow over complex terrain, accounting for the variation in viscosity and density as a funcion of temperature.
The spill on water model simulates oil trajectory, evaporation, emulsification, and other oil fate processes [Available Q4, 2019]
The OilFlow2D model is integrated with the QGIS Geographical Information Software that provides all the tools necessary to setup the model on the most demanding sites, and includes outstanding visualization and dynamic animation capabilities to facilitate oil spill risk assessments.
