Research at NIST-Boulder on the Compatibility of Hydrogen and Carbon Steels

Abstract

The demand for gaseous hydrogen fuel is expected to necessitate a consistent supply of hydrogen that can only be delivered through networks of existing and new pipelines and storage units. The focus of the Hydrogen Project at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Materials Reliability Division, in Boulder, CO is to characterize the mechanical behavior of pipeline and pressure vessel materials exposed to highly pressurized hydrogen gas. The material properties will be used to generate databases and develop codes and standards, essential to the safe and reliable transportation of gaseous pipelines.
