Isotropic random fracture model for metal hydride powder
03 Oct 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Kyle Christopher Smith, Timothy S Fisher
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...
