Turbulent thermal buoyancy-driven flow of the liquefied gases LNG and LH2 in a spherical enclosure having a free evaporation surface and a uniformly insulated outer wall was analyzed with a spherical coordinate system. The k-e two-equation models were used for the turbulent calculation and the finite difference method was applied for the numerical calculation.
