Monte-Carlo-analysis of Minimum Load Cycle Requirements for Composite Cylinders for Hydrogen


Existing regulations and standards for the approval of composite cylinders in hydrogen service are currently based on deterministic criteria (ISO 11119-3, UN GTR No. 13). This paper provides a systematic analysis of the load cycle properties resulting from these regulations and standards. Their characteristics are compared with the probabilistic approach of the BAM. Based on Monte-Carlo simulations the available design range of all concepts is compared. In addition, the probability of acceptance for potentially unsafe design types is determined.
