This paper presents a new computational tool developed for consequence analysis modelling as far as gas releases are concerned. The code comprises the following models: discharge, dispersion, vapour cloud explosion and jet fire. The code also includes advance RSM (Response Surface Methodology) curves based on CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) findings. Four cases are compared with literature data in order to validate the tool. Good agreement with benchmarking cases is observed.
