Research Activities: 2005


Transportation Research and Development

The proposed activities under this proposal are aimed at initiating the research related to the development of a rural hydrogen transportation test bed that will demonstrate, evaluate and promote hydrogen-based technologies in a real-world environment. Following are the reports corresponding to the individual activities making up this proposal.

On-site Generation of Hydrogen from Ethanol

Modeling of Composite Hydrogen Storage Cylinders Using Finite Element Analysis

Non-Destructive Testing and Evaluation (NDT&E)

High Voltage Disconnect Systems (HVDS)

Statistically Validated Codes and Standards

Hydrogen Flammability Limits and Implications on Fire Safety of Transportation Vehicles

Detonation Wave Propagation and Interaction with Transportation Infrastructure
