The present paper shows the main aspects related to the conceptual design of an innovative mean of transport for natural gas. The analysis inspects the features and the overall calculation of a pilot scale (7.5 m length)airship drone prototype, able to carry out natural gas transport, contained in impermeable bags, between two pre-established stations of departure and arrival, in accordance with the ENAC regulations. The proposed drone vehicle envisages the implementation of innovative solutions both for motion (such as the remote control, the thermal and electric propulsion) and for materials employed.

Abstract

The present paper shows the main aspects related to the conceptual design of an innovative mean of transport for natural gas. The analysis inspects the features and the overall calculation of a pilot scale (7.5 m length)airship drone prototype, able to carry out natural gas transport, contained in impermeable bags, between two pre-established stations of departure and arrival, in accordance with the ENAC regulations. The proposed drone vehicle envisages the implementation of innovative solutions both for motion (such as the remote control, the thermal and electric propulsion) and for materials employed.
