Abstract

Unexpected and sometimes hazardous variations in evaporation rate (boil-off) appear to be a feature of the storage behaviour of cryogenic liquids. For the purpose of this paper “cryogenic liquids” include all liquids boiling at temperatures below ambient, i.e. LPG, LNG, LIN, LOX, LH2, LHe etc.
