Experimental Measurements of Structural Displacement During Hydrogen Vented Deflagrations for FE Model Validation


Vented deflagration tests were conducted by UNIPI at B. Guerrini Laboratory during the experimental campaign for HySEA project. Experiments included homogeneous hydrogen-air mixture in a 10-18% vol. range of concentrations contained in an about 1 m3 enclosure, called SSE (Small Scale Enclosure). Displacement measurements of a test plate were taken in order to acquire useful data for the validation of FE model developed by IMPETUS Afea. In this paper experimental facility, displacement measurement system and FE model are briefly described, then comparison between experimental data and simulation results is discussed.
