This paper summarizes the outcomes of a numerical study about the phenomenon of hydrogen absorption in an axisymmetric tank geometry containing magnesium hydride heated to 300˚C and at moderate storage pressure 1 MPa. The governing equations are solved with a fully implicit finite volume numerical scheme (as implemented in the commercial software FLUENT). Different kinetic reaction equations modeling hydrogen absorption are considered and the related numerical simulations are compared with experimental results. Spatial and temporal profiles of temperature and concentration in hydride bed are plotted.
