Efficiency of subset simulation in the design of lined rock caverns for storage of hydrogen gas
Damasceno, D. R., Spross, J., Johansson, F., Johansson, J. (2019) Efficiency of subset simulation in the design of lined rock caverns for storage of hydrogen gas. In:13th International Conference on Applications of Statistics and Probability in Civil Engineering, Seoul, South Korea, 26-30 May 2019.
Efforts to substitute the use of fossil fuels in industry by hydrogen gas requires the storage of large volumes of gas with a reliable pressure vessel design. The Hydrogen Breakthrough Ironmaking Technology (HYBRIT) initiative aims to make the whole steel making process in Sweden fossil-free with the storage of industrial scale quantities of hydrogen in underground Lined Rock Cavers (LRCs). In this paper, the efficiency of Subset Simulation (SuS) regarding accuracy, precision and required number of samples is studied for the calculation of probability of failure against fatigue of the steel lining.
