  • History

    The R&D team at GexCon originated from the gas and dust explosion research performed at the Christian Michelsen Institute (CMI) up to 1992, and then at Christian Michelsen Research (CMR) until 2000. The explosion activities at CMI started in the 1970s, initially with dust explosions. The gas explosion activity started…

  • Hydrogen Safety

    GexCon has been involved in many of the important R&D activities on hydrogen safety in recent years, including being partner in HySafe EU-network of excellence and participating in IEA hydrogen safety expert group. We have also performed inhouse explosion and dispersion experiments to build competence.  The GexCon team has written several papers…

  • Dispersion & Cloud Generation

    While the main R&D focus for GexCon software development in the 1980s and 1990s was on explosion modeling, a significant effort has been devoted to dispersion modeling over the past decade. Initial efforts focussed on the generation of flammable gas clouds so that they could be integrated into explosion risk…

  • Explosion and Mitigation

    Gas and vapor cloud explosion has historically been the backbone of our research at GexCon, with substantial test activities through the 1980s and 1990s. It has been recognized that FLACS simulations can provide estimates of blast loads as accurate as those determined experimentally, but for only a fraction of the…
