Abstract: Oxygen Deficiency Hazard (ODH) due to inert gas releases can be assessed by the use of predictive models. Several models are available in the literature: the majority of them can be classified as "well-mixed" models because they assume the existence of completely and instantaneously well mixed air. In order to provide a more precise estimation of the indoor oxygen level in the breathable air close to a release point, we propose a Near Field-Far Field (NF-FF) model in which the Near Field volume is an output an…
