DEMONSTRATION OF AN URBAN VEHICLE FUELLED WITH HYDROGEN STORED IN IRON TITANIUM HYDRIDE

Lubricant selection, guided by test results of the hydrogen ignition potential of oil residues, together with extensive engine development, have considerably reduced the engine induction ignition (backfiring problem). Further control measures will be needed for sustained power operation in excess of 20kw. Literature search and correspondence have revealed that the ternary alloy iron titanium and manganese (around 15 atom percent), is better suited to energy storage than the binary alloy of iron and titanium. Since little information on the heat transfer properties of these materials exists, a 'thermal properties apparatus' has been designed and will shortly be operational. This will enable greater precision in the design of the hydride storage vessel. (Author/TRRL)
