Basic research in area of hydrogen safety

  • Hydrogen under-expanded jets, including concentration decay in plane jets
  • Release, mixing and dispersion of gaseous and liquefied hydrogen in the open atmosphere and complex geometries,
  • Mechanisms of spontaneous ignition of sudden releases of hydrogen at pressures up to 1000 atmospheres,
  • Partially premixed combustion of large-scale non-uniform hydrogen-air mixtures
  • Behaviour of under-ventilated hydrogen jet fires,
  • Modelling and simulation of large-scale deflagration-to-detonation transition
  • Innovative safety strategies and mitigation technologies,
  • Thermal and pressure effects of hydrogen unignited and reacting releases on people and structures,
  • Reduction of safety distances by deterministic methods
