Numerical Simulation Method of Hydrogen Diffusion Into the Space Around the Hydrogen Tank of Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle
Published October 12, 2011 by Society of Automotive Engineers of Japan in Japan
Research was conducted on a numerical simulation method that can simulate hydrogen diffusion behavior into the complexly shaped space around the hydrogen tank of a fuel cell electric vehicle. A three-part partitioning calculation method was newly devised and turbulence models were selected. The results confirmed that the simulation method had a practical calculation time and high calculation accuracy. These results indicated that the new method is useful for fuel cell electric vehicle development.
