The study of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles is currently one of the popular research topics. However, a vital issue for hydrogen fuel cell vehicles is the hydrogen tank safety when hydrogen tank catch fires. In this paper, the carbon fibre-epoxy composite from hydrogen tank was investigated by thermogravimetric analysis. Thermogravimetric experiments were carried out at three heating rates (20, 30 and 40 K/min) in a nitrogen atmosphere. A two-step parallel reaction scheme was developed for the decomposition of the carbon-fibre epoxy composite based on the K-K method and previous studies. The kinetic reaction scheme was coupled to Shuffled Complex Evolution (SCE) method to obtain optimized kinetic parameters. The predicted values using the optimized kinetic parameters show a good agreement with the experimental data, which shows the potential promising application of the reaction scheme and optimized kinetic parameters of the carbon-fibre epoxy composite.
