In this paper we present a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations for the case of natural gas explosion in urban area. Blast simulations aid in the development of effective mitigation strategies. By understanding how blast waves propagate through an urban environment, authorities can implement measures such as barriers, protective shields, strategies for firefighting strategy or evacuation plans to minimize damage and casualties. Accurate simulations provide insights into the potential impact of a blast on surrounding infrastructure and populations. This information is crucial for emergency response planning, helping authorities to allocate resources and respond effectively to minimize the consequences of an explosion.
