About this book

Introduction

The potential of hydrogen as an important future energy source has generated fresh interest in the study of hydrogenous gas mixtures. Indeed, both its high caloricity and reactivity are unique properties, the latter underscoring safety considerations when handling such mixtures.

 

The present monograph is devoted to the various aspects of hydrogen combustion and explosion processes. In addition to theoretical and phenomenological considerations, this work also collates the results of many experiments from less well known sources. The text reviews the literature in this respect, thereby providing valuable information about the thermo-gas-dynamical parameters of combustion processes for selected experimental settings in a range of scientific and industrial applications.

Keywords

Explosions and detonations in hydrogen Hydrogen safety hazards Hydrogen storage Hydrogenous gas mixtures Laminar and turbulent flame velocities Thermo-gas-dynamical parameters for hydrogen combustion
