The ANR MESSIAH Industrial Chair
at the forefront of mini-specimens

Mini-tests for In-Service Monitoring of Structures with Application to Hydrogen Transport

Our vision

Industrial structures for power generation and transmission are designed to have a life span of more than 40 years. Knowledge of the evolution of materials over very long periods is therefore crucial to ensure the safety and reliability of these facilities. In addition, in the context of decarbonization of energy sources, hydrogen produced by water electrolysis, for example, will play an important role. It is envisaged to collect and distribute the hydrogen produced in this way (mixed with fossil methane or biogas) by using existing networks. It is then crucial to qualify the suitability of the different sections for the transport of hydrogen gas.
In order to monitor the evolution of the materials throughout the lifetime of the installations and to qualify their suitability for the transport of hydrogen, the MESSIAH Chair program proposes to use mini-tests machined from coupons extracted from the installations.



Inauguration of the ANR MESSIAH industrial Chair

The inauguration will take place at the École des Mines (60 Bd Saint Michel, Paris) on Friday, October 15, 2021 from 2 to 6 pm. A link via Internet will also be proposed.
