The first part of this book is available in "Fundamentals of Hydrogen Safety Engineering, I

This is the first state-of-the-art book on hydrogen safety engineering. The author Prof Vladimir Molkov is an expert in this emerging discipline, leading the HySAFER Centre at the University of Ulster. Topics include releases and dispersion, ignitions and fires, deflagrations and detonations, etc. The book can be used by students of the distance learning MSc course in Hydrogen Safety Engineering, technology developers and safety engineers, regulators and officials permitting hydrogen and fuel cell systems and infrastructure or other stakeholders including public.

  1. Deflagrations
    1. General features of deflagrations and detonations
    2. Some observations of DDT in hydrogen-air mixtures
    3. Vented deflagrations
    4. Large eddy simulation (LES) of large-scale deflagrations
  2. Detonations
    1. Direct initiation of detonation
    2. LES of hydrogen-air detonations
  3. Safety strategies and mitigation techniques
    1. Inherently safer design of fuel cell systems
    2. Mitigation of release consequences
    3. Reduction of separation distances for high debit pipes
    4. Mitigation by barriers
    5. Mitigation of deflagration-to-detonation transition (DDT)
    6. Prevention of DDT within a fuel cell
    7. Detection and hydrogen sensors
  4. Concluding remarks
  5. Acknowledgements
  6. Appendix 1. Glossary
  7. References
This book contained all basic knowledge which will be useful to any engineer who deals with hydrogen safety engineering.
