Relief design for runaway reactions requires the development of a model of the reactive system which includes the heat released, the generation of non-condensables, and the physical properties of the reactive system. Design of these systems can be accomplished either through the application of scaling methodologies or the development and application of a kinetic model. Either approach will require calorimetry to characterize the behavior of systems which are not already established. This session invites original papers that focus on the testing required to characterize reactive systems and obtain the required data for the development of kinetic model for the system or use a direct scaling approach to size relief systems from the collected data.
