Spontaneous Ignition of Hydrogen- Literature Review


The aim of this review is to establish which available literature may be of use as part of the HSE funded project, which will investigate spontaneous ignition of accidental hydrogen releases (JR02071). It will identify  phenomena that have the potential to cause spontaneous ignition of releases of pressured hydrogen and identify literature that may be of use when formulating the experimental program.
Main Findings
The identification of important work that shows conclusive evidence of spontaneous ignition of hydrogen due to the failure of a boundary layer.
