Davi Rodrigues Damasceno
Doctorand at the Division of Soil and Rock Mechanics with research focus in the improvement of the design methodology for the Lined Rock Cavern concept. This work is a contribution to the HYBRIT initiative which is a joint venture project between LKAB, SSAB and Vattenfall to implement the first fossil-free steel-making process in the Swedish industry. Reliability based analysis is used to design underground storages for hydrogen gas. The aim is to optimize the rock-concrete-steel lining interaction with respect to reduction of local strain effects and evaluate the influence of rock heterogeneity on the storage behaviour.
