The ignition of a hydrogen-air mixture that has engulfed a typical set of ambient vaporizers (i.e., an array of finned tubes) may result in a deflagration-to-detonation transition (DDT). Simplified curve-based vapor cloud explosion (VCE) blast load prediction methods, such as the Baker-Strehlow-Tang (BST) method, would predict a DDT given that typical ambient vaporizers would be rated as medium or high congestion and hydrogen is a high reactivity fuel (i.e., high laminar burning velocity).
