AbstractWhen employing pure hydrogen, its leakage poses a serious safety risk since it can cause fire or explode if it comes into contact with the air. In this study, hydrogen leakage in a form of a buoyant jet is investigated using machine learning approaches. As the experiments used to explore hydrogen leaks are extremely dangerous, and there is a limitation of data, we instead construct an artificial dataset using a traditional numerical model. The dataset was produced using a combined empirical-analytical-numerical model. Investigations into dataset preparation, feature significance, correlation, and hyperparameter adjustment are conducted. Artificial neural networks, random forests, gradient boosting regression, and decision trees are the machine-learning approaches that have been used to forecast the distribution of hydrogen leaks in the atmosphere. Different error metrics and R 2 correlation have been used to assess the prediction accuracy. The RF method was found to be the most effective approach for forecasting the dispersion of hydrogen leaking into the air.
