Physical Explosion: LNG Rapid Phase Transitions (RPT)

  • LNG spilled onto water sometime undergoes a rapid phase transition (RPT) or physical explosion creating localized overpressure. Such physical explosions are also observed when water contacts molten metal or hot lava (steam explosions).
    RPT is a result of near spontaneous generation of vapor as the cold LNG is vaporized from heat gained from the underlying spill surface.
