Numerical investigation on the dispersion of hydrogen leaking from a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle in seaborne transportation

Abstract

The International Maritime Organization under the United Nations has developed safety requirements for seaborne transportation of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles in consideration of a recent increase in such transportation. Japan has led the development of new regulations in the light of some research outcomes including numerical simulations on hydrogen dispersion in a cargo space of a vehicle carrier in case of accidental leakage of hydrogen from the vehicle. Numerical results indicate that the region of space occupied by flammable hydrogen/air mixture strongly depends on the direction of ventilation openings. These findings have contributed to the development of new international regulations.
