CRITICAL REVIEW AND ASSESSMENT OF PROBLEMS IN HYDROGEN ENERGY DELIVERY SYSTEMS. PROGRESS REPORT, NOVEMBER 1, 1976--SEPTEMBER 30, 1977

Potential problem areas associated with the delivery of hydrogen in large quantities and over long distances are addressed. Initial focus is on two transport modes--liquid hydrogen highway transport and gaseous hydrogen pipeline transmission. A preliminary risk analysis of tractor-trailer shipment of liquid hydrogen is documented in this initial report. Hydrogen embrittlement of metals is surveyed as applied to hydrogen delivery systems. Existing regulations and guidelines affecting hydrogen delivery are reviewed for adequacy and appropriateness to future system developments.
