A Review on the Factors of Liner Collapse in Type IV Hydrogen Storage Vessels


The on-board hydrogen storage of mobile applications is a key area of global industrial transformation to hydrogen technology. The research work provides an overview about the principle of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, with a focus on the widespread on-board hydrogen storage technologies. In this work, type IV composite pressure vessels in particular are reviewed. The key challenges of polymeric liners are deeply investigated, and liner collapse was identified as a critical failure of type IV vessels. Different factors of liner collapse were categorized and relevant material properties - such as permeability, physical characteristics, and surface properties - were explained in more detail to lay the foundation for further research on high barrier, durable polymeric liner materials.
