For hydrogen to be used as a fuel it is important to have an efficient storage solution. RISE has worked with the development of hydrogen storage tanks for a considerable number of years.
Background expertise for development of composite storage tanks include development of both gas and liquid hydrogen in the form of both type 4 and type 5 tank
RISE have expertise in design & simulation, material testing, manufacturing and prototyping development, sustainability analysis and advice.
The current team is built up of approximately 20 scientist, engineers and technicians working on this subject, with research and development projects covering aerospace, mass transport and marine applications with an ambition to expand in the future with more prototyping, testing equipment and researchers.
Design and simulation:
The team develop solutions from concept to detailed design including material and failure modelling, combining hand calculations, finite element modelling and material selection. This is then linked to the process simulation of winding patterns and subsequence curing kinetics. The process simulation knowledge is then linked to the prototyping and testing requirements. Software used by this team include, Abaqus, ANSYS and CADWind
For a new technology to be acceptable and exploited, it needs to consider the environmental impact. RISE have expertise in life cycle analysis, (LCA) circular economy, sustainable material selection, recycling technologies and opportunities as well as end of life assessments.
Rise current project portfolio include research areas such as:
