About the Project

We are seeking a PhD candidate to work on an industry project in simulating uncontrolled liquid hydrogen release. Hydrogen is a clean fuel for decarbonization and is commonly transported as liquid in deep cryogenic state (-253°C). This project, funded by Fortescue Future Industries, investigates the behaviour of liquid hydrogen upon accidental release from the storage containers to the environment. Air can be condensed in the process where heat and mass transfer, phase change, and turbulent flow are intrinsically coupled. The PhD project will investigate the cryogenic hydrogen release by conducting CFD simulations to understand the interactions between the cryogenic fluid and ambient air.
