Show Me the Road to Hydrogen Non-Destructive Evaluation (NDE)

Information is lacking about failure mechanisms associated with various hydrogen transportation systems, the types of typical failures, and critical locations where they may occur. Although one may consider these systems to be related to carbon-reinforced pressure vessels, their specific uses, material interactions with hydrogen, and unique in-service accumulated damages are expected to impose certain NDE restrictions and limitations that pressure vessels used in aerospace industry may not suffer from. Therefore, in consultation with public safety authorities and experts, researchers must evaluate, select and bring in various suitable NDE methods for an effective synergistically integrated approach to the NDE of these different components.
