Experimental Results and Comparison with Simulated Data of a Low Pressure Hydrogen Jet


Experiments with a hydrogen jet were performed at two different pressures, 96 psig (6.6 bars) and 237 psig (16.3 bars). The hydrogen leak was generated at two different hole sizes, 1/16 inch (1.6 mm) and 1/32 inch (0.79 mm). The flammable shape of the plume was characterised by numerous measurements of the hydrogen concentration inside of the jet. The effect of the nearby horizontal surface on the shape of the plume was measured and compared with results of CFD numerical simulations. The paper will present results and an interpretation on the nature of the plume shape.
