Safety and Operations of Hydrogen Fuel Infrastructure in Northern Climates - A Collaborative Complex Systems Approach

Primary activities involved working on proposed research efforts, conducting technology transfer and rewriting subcontracts. Much of the effort focused on developing advanced technologies for improving the safety of high pressure hydrogen storage systems. This included the examination of fast filling systems, monitoring systems, self sealing systems and non-cylindrical tanks. Also, under this project a novel hydrogen imaging system was successfully created as well as a hydrogen safety code analysis. A significant portion of the research was conducted in collaboration with Zhejiang and Tsinghua Universities. Ten papers were presented/submitted for publications.
