Ever wondered about the visual and auditory drama of a hydrogen explosion?

Hydrogen, a versatile energy carrier, is widely used across various applications. Ongoing research initiatives aim to expand its utilization, yet unique safety considerations arise compared to conventional sources.

In this talk, PhD candidate Melodia Lucas will take us on an exciting journey, revealing large-scale hydrogen explosions through experiments in Sotra and 3D simulations in the tool FLACS.  She will also show the limitations of the simulation tool and share her work to improve the predictive capabilities. 

The event will last approximately 45 minutes, with light refreshments of coffee/tea and biscuits provided (feel free to bring your own cup!). Everyone is welcome!
