Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


The spatial and temporal H2 distributions (predicted by a computational fluid dynamics model that had been calibrated using helium data) at given leak rates agreed very well with experimental data. Using this model, it was shown that volume of combustible gas created by a leak from a H2-fueled vehicle was very much less than that from a LPG-fueled vehicle. It should be noted that the combustible gas cloud produced by a leak from H2 fueled vehicle reached steady state after 1 hr, while that from the LPG-fueled vehicle continued to grow.
