Overview of HyRAM (Hydrogen Risk Assessment Models) Software for Science-Based Safety, Codes, and Standards

Sandia researchers will conduct a live webinar, “Overview of HyRAM (Hydrogen Risk Assessment Models) Software for Science-Based Safety, Codes, and Standards” on Tuesday, April 26, from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time (EDT).

This webinar provides an introduction to the new HyRAM (Hydrogen Risk Assessment Models) research software developed by Sandia National Laboratories and supported by the Fuel Cell Technologies Office. The HyRAM toolkit was designed to address key barriers to hydrogen infrastructure deployment, including limited access to safety data, lack of models describing hydrogen behavior, and challenges using technical data to revise standards. The HyRAM toolkit integrates state-of-the-art models, methods, and data to provide a common platform for assessing hydrogen safety with validated consequence models and quantitative risk assessment. The resulting information provides a transparent, documented basis to ensure code requirements are consistent, logical, and defensible. HyRAM provides a robust foundation for using science and engineering data to provide a scientific basis for risk-informed codes and standards. HyRAM is being used in the development of National Fire Protection Association and ISO standards for hydrogen fueling stations. Advanced registration is required.
