Hydrogen: Exceptional Properties and Hazard Assessment & Mitigation

Decarbonization will promote the use of hydrogen and introduce new technologies that pose safety challenges to its new users, thus the motivation for this course. Expect a comprehensive and unique treatment of the exceptional properties of hydrogen and its dispersion, fire, and explosion hazards when released accidentally and how to mitigate against them. Drawing upon the chemical industry experience with the production, handling, storage and transport of liquid and pressurized hydrogen, we will discuss initiating events, their evolution, systems survivability, design issues and protection. We will adapt them to the case of hydrogen with the fundamentals introduced as needed. This approach is tailored to professionals who want to broaden and deepen their knowledge to enable handling new situations. The course is illustrated by videotapes and photographs of real events and well controlled and instrumented bench- and full-scale tests.

Attendees will benefit from a grasp of:

  • Hazards associated with the accidental release from pressurized and liquified hydrogen systems
  • Scenario evolution including dispersion, fire and, explosion depending on local conditions
  • Presentation of related fundamentals particularly those that differentiate hydrogen from other fuels
  • Available simplified analyses for quick answers
  • When to use such analyses vs. computer models
  • What to ask from Subject Matter Experts
  • How to assess hazards from new technologies
  • Dynamic class and discussion of current issues

Attendees receive class notes containing a wealth of key data and a certificate of completion. Course is equivalent to three Continuing Education Credit Units.
