The Spread of Fire from Adjoining Vehicles to a Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicle

Abstract

Two vehicle fire tests were conducted to investigate the spread of fire to adjacent vehicles from a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle (HFCV) equipped with a thermal pressure relief device (TPRD) : – 1) an HFCV fire test involving an adjacent gasoline vehicle, 2) a fire test involving three adjoining HFCV assuming their transportation in a carrier ship. The test results indicated that the adjacent vehicles were ignited by flames from the interior and exterior materials of the fire origin HFCV, but not by the hydrogen flames generated through the activation of TPRD.
