INTERNAL FRICTION MEASUREMENTS FOR THE ANALYSIS OF HYDROGEN IN STEEL PARTS,

Pagination or Media Count:
Damping versus temperature curves were determined, by means of a torsion pendulum internal friction apparatus, for hydrogen charged cold drawn 4340 steel wire. A relaxation peak, identified as the Hydrogen Cold-Work Peak, was found in the curves between -90C and -70C. A plot of this relaxation peak height versus charging time shows a linear relationship over only a limited range. The low hydrogen concentration levels that can cause hydrogen embrittlement were found to be below the limits of accurate detection by internal friction methods. Author
