Personal profile


Dr Volodymyr SHENTSOV is a Mathematical Engineer in Applied Mathematics, he graduated from National Aerospace University (Ukraine) in 2007 and been a member of the HySAFER team at Ulster University since 2012 as a PhD student, since 2014 as a Research Associate in Safety Engineering and since 2020 was appointed as a Lecturer in Hydrogen Safety.

Research interests

His research interests and responsibilities within HySAFER group are provision of relevant experience in the area of hydrogen safety in particular the analytical and CFD studies of different hydrogen safety related phenomenon for example unignited releases and dispersion of hydrogen in vented enclosures, including analytical studies of ignited pressure peaking and radiation from the hot layer indoors, CFD simulations of hydrogen non-premixed combustion with EDC model to study hydrogen jet fire dynamics and simulations of hydrogen tank rupture with the blast wave and fire ball, simulations of flame lift-off and blow-off etc.

Current projects

Currently Volodymyr is the work package leader in European and UK projects:

  • NET-Tools “Novel Education and Training Tools based on digital applications related to Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technology”. Providing support in development of innovative digital instrument “e-Laboratory”;
  • TeacHy “Teaching Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Science and Engineering Across Europe within Horizon 2020”. Developing distance learning PgCert PD course “Hydrogen Safety” and providing support in dissemination activities and development and support of the project website;
  • HyTunnel-CS "PNR for safety of hydrogen driven vehicles and transport through tunnels and similar confined spaces". Development and support of the project web-site as well as delivery of other duties withing several work packages in analytical and numerical aspects.

  • HyLantic " Atlantic Network for Renewable Generation and Supply of Hydrogen topromote High Energy Efficiency". Contribution to the project in terms of thermal and pressure effects from jet-fires, blast waves and fireballs.

  • SUPERGEN Hub. Analysis of blast mitigation effects in a tunnel and simulation of blast decay along a tunnel, without and with mitigation measures.


Volodymyr is resposible for the development and coordination of the online PG CPD course in Hydrogen Safety Engineering which is commenced in September 2018 at the Ulster University. Role: tutor and module coordinator of two modules:
