AbstractAt Transport Canada’s request, the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) examined potential safety issues related to leaks from natural gas Class 2 trucks in Canada. This work involved performing a literature review in order to establish the required parameters to perform computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations of different leak scenarios of Class 2 compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicles inside parking garages.
