Abstract:

The behavior of steel, titanium, aluminum and nickel alloys are analyzed in terms of the specific interrelationships between metallurgical variables and the susceptibility towards hydrogen embrittlement. It is demonstrated that specific recommendations can be made which should improve the performance of a given material in a hydrogen-bearing or producing environment. These recommendations are balanced with nonenvironmental strength and toughness constraints, since little progress would be made, for example, by changing an alloy from hydrogen-embrittlement-critical to toughness-critical in a given design environment.
