Features
Solid-liquid two-phase slush hydrogen has a number of desirable characteristics as a functionally thermal fluid, taking advantage of the high density and latent heat of fusion due to the solid particles. The principal researcher has been proposing a high-efficiency hydrogen energy system (Fig. 1). The principal researcher has also undertaken research and development works such as density and mass flow-rate meters for slush hydrogen (Fig. 2), heat transfer characteristics of slush hydrogen as the refrigerant for superconducting machines, and a numerical analysis for thermo-fluid characteristics of slush fluid flow (Fig. 3).

Targeted Application(s)/Industry
We hope to conduct collaborative research with a willing company for a practical application of these technologies in hydrogen energy industry.
