Spherical Cryogenic Hydrogen Tank Preliminary Design Trade Studies

Abstract

A structural analysis, sizing optimization, and weight prediction study was performed by Collier Research Corporation and NASA Glenn on a spherical cryogenic hydrogen tank. The tank consisted of an inner and outer wall separated by a vacuum for thermal insulation purposes. HyperSizer®, a commercial automated structural analysis and sizing software package… (More)
