Abstract:

The transient current of hydrogen removal from iron following steady state permeation is analyzed theoretically for two limiting conditions at the i9nput side. For the fastest possible removal C 0 at X 0 and at X L, the amount extracted at the potentiostated side X L is one third of the total present at steady state permeation described by CsubX - Csub1 - XL. Comparison of the integrated total flux and the amount given by the integral of CsubX indicates possible concentration dependence of hydrogen diffusivity in iron. Author
