The aim of this project is to develop lightweight composite tanks for liquid hydrogen for future fossil free aircraft.

Male researcher holding a tank.Mohamed Loukil. Our task is to investigate the effect of thermo-mechanical cycling of thin ply composites intended for cryogenic hydrogen storage applications. Quasi-static, mechanical fatigue and thermal fatigue tests were performed at Linköping University. This project is coordinated by RISE.

Partners: RISE (Coordinator), Linköping University, Oxeon AB, Chalmers University of technology, KonveGas AB.

Call: Fossil free aviation 2045, The Swedish Energy Agency.

Role: Coordinator of the project work at Linköping University.
