Safety Assessment of Composite Cylinders for Gas Storage by Statistical Methods: Potential for Design Optimisation Beyond Limits of Current Regulations and Standards By Dr. Georg W. Mair
English | PDF | 2017 | 387 Pages | ISBN : 3319497081 | 18.69 MB
Featuring a detailed analysis of current approval requirements and the relevant safety assessment methods for gas cylinders in general and with main focus on composite cylinders for storing compressed natural gas and hydrogen, this book demonstrates how current regulations and standards limit the ability to reduce cost and weight. Based on this data, it then highlights the potential offered by the proposed approval procedure based on probabilistic safety assessment
After addressing the economic potential of probabilistic safety assessments, the book details working procedures and improving cycles and (slow) bursts as methods for assessing residual strength.
