Renewable energies became more and more important in the last years. Hydrogen as a promising energy carrier is a perfect candidate to supply the energy demand of the world. The state of the hydrogen gas (turbulences and point concentrations) has a significant impact on the gas explosion indices. A gas cloud is formed by a partial-pressure method in gas explosion experiments in the spherical 20.0∙10-3 m3 chamber. Gas in the chamber reaches an uniform state beyond in hundreds of ms. The absolute pressure for gas dispersion should be higher than 0.01 MPa for the H2 of concentration larger than 30 vol. % of fuel. The initial temperature also influences turbulent gas flow before ignition, especially in the case of the gases lighter-than-air.
