Metal hydrides can be used to store hydrogen on-board fuel cell vehicles, but the process of fracture which such materials undergo when exposed to hydrogen makes them poor conductors of the heat generated during hydriding. This fracture process creates particles having irregular faceted shapes that are difficult to quantitatively generalize directly from experimental microscopy data. This tool enables modeling of discrete metal hydride particles under the approximation of planar fracture with isotropic orientation and position. Go to this thermalHUB topics page for more details about the tool.
