Abstract:

Hazards associated with the use of li uid ydrog i r rc n dev lop nt facili i r i cu pplic bl c iques of hazard prevention and control are r view T physical and chemical properties of hydrogen are summarized with emphasis on the relation of these properties to combustion a d o io proces . Informatio coll c ed on e p ri c prac ices in numerous facilities. Hazards comprise the possibility of pressure rupture of containers, initiation of flammable mixtures formed by release of hydrogen due to vessel f ilure or o r c u plo io of hy rog n and contaminating oxyg u er cryog nic co ditio ORY OF CHEMIC L REACTION PROVIDES A COMPLETE UNDERSTANDING OF THE COMBUSTION AN DETONATION CHARACTERISTICS OF HYDROGEN-OXYGEN SYSTEMS AND DEFIN S THE CHEMICAL AND PHYSICAL REQUIRE TS FOR I IBI IO CO ROL OF COMBU IO ND DETONATIO .
