Surge modeling of complex systems such as marine fuel oil terminals requires the use of accurate computer modeling techniques to help insure the best possible response to surge events. Various surge mitigation techniques can be pursued that often require information that manufactures rarely provide and have behavior that is problematic to replicate in a computer model. This paper provides guidance with one such device, the surge relief valve, and offers a case study in how they were used in conjunction with valve stroking to mitigate significant surge events at a terminal in the gulf coast region of the United States.
