NIST Calculates High Cost of Hydrogen Pipelines, Shows How to Reduce It (image) National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Share Print E-Mail Caption Samples of pipeline steel instrumented for fatigue testing in a pressurized hydrogen chamber (the vertical tube). NIST researchers used data from such tests to develop a model for hydrogen effects on pipeline lifetime, to support a federal effort to reduce overall costs of hydrogen fuel.
