Title: HYDROGEN PIPELINE RESEARCH AT NIST
Published: March 31, 2008
Abstract: In 2007, the National Institute of Standards and Technology greatly expanded its efforts in support of the use of hydrogen as a fuel.   Various NIST divisions have started projects on measurement needs in the areas of flow rates, storage, materials compatibility and other standardization issues.  Our Division (Materials Reliability) has focused on the issues with hydrogen embrittlement of conventional pipeline and storage vessel materials (mostly steels).  Our first step was to hold a workshop to help us rank the various needs, and then use this data to plan and construct an appropriate test facility.
