Thermal-structural characteristics of multi-layer vacuum-insulated pipe for the transfer of cryogenic liquid hydrogen

Author(s) : Jeong Hwan Kim, Dae Kyeom Park, Tae Jin Kim, Jung Kwan Seo

Abstract:
As the worlds hydrocarbon supplies are gradually being depleted, the search for alternative energy sources with acceptably low emissions of environmentally harmful pollutants is a growing concern. Hydrogen has been proposed by numerous researchers as a fuel source for ships. Liquid hydrogen (LH2) has been shown to be particularly attractive as a ship fuel with respect to its ability to reduce pollution, density, high performance in engines, and high caloric value per unit mass. However, working with hydrogen in the liquid phase requires very low (i.e., cryogenic) temperatures. The design of a cryogenic LH2 pipeline is very different from the design of a normal fluid pipe due to the change between the liquid and gas states involved and the effect of thermal and structural characteristics on the cryogenic temperature during LH2 transportation through the transfer pipeline. This study investigated the material and thermal-structural characteristics of a multi-layer vacuum-insulated pipeline system through experiments and finite element analysis. The experimental and numerical results can be used as a database of material parameters for thermal-structural analysis when designing applications such as LH2 pipeline systems for hydrogen carriers and hydrogen-fuelled ships.
