Future fuels decompression behaviour

December 2nd, 2021

R&D Focus Areas:
Pipeline materials and performance

Lead Organisation:
University of Wollongong

Future Fuels CRC


Start date:
August 2019

Project summary description:
The control of running ductile fracture in high pressure transmission pipelines is supported by models, experiments and regulatory standards. Transportation of future fuels in pipeline systems raises questions on the applicability of the prediction methods used by these existing models (developed for natural gas). This research project places particular focus on the decompression characteristics of hydrogen-methane mixture compositions.
