The storage of hydrogen at pressures clearly presents a challenge to designers of pressure vessels to ensure their utmost reliability. At present there is a paucity of information on the reliability of carbon fibre composite pressure vessels which are intended for use over periods of decades and those testing procedures which are mentioned in standards have been shown to be largely unsuitable as they are based on the failure of metal structures. This study deals with failure and failure… CONTINUE READING
