Abstract

The development of a large-scale hydrogen liquefier by the National Bureau of Standards required development of large, transportable types of liquid hydrogen vessels. It is the purpose of this paper to report on some aspects of large-scale hydrogen dewar development conducted at the National Bureau of Standards’ Cryogenic Engineering Laboratory.
