HyPRISM

HyPRISM is a simulation tool designed to model the pressure increase in thermally dissociated hydrate plugs in pipelines. Given an initial condition set within the equilibrium region, the model predicts the final steady state temperature and pressure in a pipeline after dissociating a four phase hydrate plug. It will also depict the pathway taken by the system between these two points, returning values for a number of key properties over the heating range.
