An overview of the properties of hydrogen fires and explosions.

Drawing on experience of several pioneering research projects from over 15 years of hydrogen safety research, Dan Allason of the DNV Spadeadam Research and Development Centre will here give an overview of the various properties of hydrogen influencing the severity of fires and explosions. An approach of a comparison of properties with those of traditional hydrocarbon hazards will be followed to give the audience an idea of comparative safety in a variety of applications from domestic to marine applications.

This webinar would interest anyone interested in process safety, clean energy technology, and hydrogen technology.


Dan Allason, Head of Section: Research and Innovation, DNV Spadeadam Research and Testing

Following attaining a physics degree from the University of Edinburgh, Dan has focused on major hazards research, covering topics such as Vapour Cloud Explosion, LNG and LH2 Dispersion, and hydrogen safety. Dan manages a team of scientists, engineers and technicians delivering research programmes for a range of industries supporting the acquisition of high-quality data for model validation, technology qualification or phenomenological research.
