Abstract

CFD is a numerical method to solve the fluid governing equations that can not be solved in analytical form.

By means of numerical simulations of potential accident scenarios, CFD can provide relevant data for risk assessment of hydrogen technologies (estimates of accident consequences e.g. pressure and thermal loads of hydrogen explosions and jet fires)

CFD can provide a valuable contribution to the engineering design of safer hydrogen infrastructures and technologies
