• Liquid Hydrogen Spills on Water—Risk and Consequences of Rapid Phase Transition 

      Odsæter, Lars Hov; Skarsvåg, Hans Langva; Aursand, Eskil; Ustolin, Federico; Reigstad, Gunhild Allard; Paltrinieri, Nicola (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021)
      Liquid hydrogen (LH2 ) spills share many of the characteristics of liquefied natural gas (LNG) spills. LNG spills on water sometimes result in localized vapor explosions known as rapid phase transitions (RPTs), and are a ...
    • Modelling of Accident Scenarios from Liquid Hydrogen Transport and Use 

      Ustolin, Federico (Doctoral theses at NTNU;2021:241, Doctoral thesis, 2021)
      Hydrogen is one of the most suitable candidates to replace hydrocarbons and reduce the environmental pollution and CO2 emissions. Hydrogen is valuable energy carrier, potentially clean and renewable thanks to its peculiar ...
    • Risk and Consequences of Rapid Phase Transition for Liquid Hydrogen 

      Aursand, Eskil; Odsæter, Lars Hov; Skarsvåg, Hans Langva; Reigstad, Gunhild Allard; Ustolin, Federico; Paltrinieri, Nicola (Chapter, 2020)
      Safe handling of liquid hydrogen (LH2) has gained extra attention over the last years due to an increase in usage to mitigate climate changes. Rapid phase transition (RPT) is a potential safety concern when cryogens, like ...
    • The influence of H2 safety research on relevant risk assessment 

      Ustolin, Federico; Paltrinieri, Nicola; Song, Guozheng (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Hydrogen is a valuable option of clean fuel to keep the global temperature rise below 2°C. However, one of the main barriers in its transport and use is to ensure safety levels that are comparable with traditional fuels. ...
    • Theories and Mechanism of Rapid Phase Transition 

      Ustolin, Federico; Odsæter, Lars Hov; Reigstad, Gunhild Allard; Skarsvåg, Hans Langva; Paltrinieri, Nicola (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Light hydrocarbons and hydrogen can replace high-alkane fuels with the benefit of reduced CO2 emissions. Their liquefaction to a cryogenic state is one of the most suitable solutions for storage and transport. An unexpected ...
