Abstract : This report was prepared for the Marshall Space Flight Center, NASA, Huntsville, Alabama; consequently, it includes only the information requested. The data pertain to manufacturing and handling processes and equipment necessary for the production and handling of liquid hydrogen. The first part summarizes various processes commonly employed for production and purification of gaseous hydrogen, liquefaction cycles, conversion of ortho-hydrogen to para-hydrogen, methods of storage and transfer, and some of the equipment associated with these processes. The major liquid hydrogen producing plants are described, and process flow charts for most plants are given. The second part of this report is an annotated bibliography containing 443 references written on this subject from 1958 to 1963. The bibliography is divided into several sections according to subject, and is followed by an appendix which includes personal author, corporate source, and report number indexes. (Author)
