Explosion and Fire Risk Analyses of Maritime Fuel Cell Rooms with Hydrogen


A methodology for explosion and fire risk analyses in enclosed rooms is presented. The objectives of this analysis are to accurately predict the risks associated with hydrogen leaks in maritime applications and to use the approach to provide decision support regarding design and risk-prevention and risk mitigating measures. The methodology uses CFD tools and simpler consequence models for ventilation, dispersion and explosion scenarios, as well as updated frequency for leaks and ignition. Risk is then efficiently calculated with a Monte Carlo routine capturing the transient behavior of the leak. This makes it possible to efficiently obtain effects of sensitivities and design options maintaining safety and reducing costs.
