The aim of the HyTunnel-CS project is to perform pre-normative research for safety of hydrogen driven vehicles and transport through tunnels

About this event

“Pre-normative research for safety of hydrogen driven vehicles and transport

through tunnels and similar confined spaces”,

14-15 July 2022, Brussels

Venue: The Hotel, 38 Boulevard de Waterloo, 1000 Bruxelles

The Dissemination Conference will present the main results of the project that has addressed the investigation of the safety of hydrogen powered vehicles and transport through tunnels and similar confined spaces.

In order to disseminate all the results of this project, different sessions will be organised during the day:

  • Closing knowledge gaps, physical phenomena and engineering tools
  • Recommendations to deal with unignited hydrogen releases and jet fires in confined spaces
  • Recommendations to prevent and mitigate hydrogen deflagrations, DDT and detonations in confined spaces
  • Recommendations to prevent hydrogen tank rupture in a fire
  • Quantitative risk assessment
  • Harmonised recommendations on response to hydrogen accidents
  • Recommendations for RCS
  • In addition the day will end with a Q&A session and closing remarks.

OBJECTIVES

  • Critical analysis of effectiveness of conventional safety measures for hydrogen incidents
  • Generation of unique experimental data using the best European hydrogen safety research facilities and three real tunnels
  • Understanding of relevant physics to underpin the advancement of hydrogen safety engineering
  • Innovative explosion and fire prevention and mitigation strategies
  • New validated CFD and FE models for consequences analysis
  • New engineering correlations for novel quantitative risk assessment methodology tailored for tunnels and underground parking
  • Harmonised recommendations for intervention strategies and tactics for first responders

We invite you to participate in the Conference to learn first-hand about the progress and conclusions reached by the work team that has made this project possible.
