Gaseous hydrogen embrittlement of materials in energy technologies: The problem, its characterisation and effects on particular alloy classes
This important two-volume book reviews the problem of degradation of metals and other materials exposed to hydrogen. The first part of volume one begins by discussing how the problem of gaseous hydrogen embrittlement affects such sectors as the petrochemicals, automotive, nuclear and other energy industries. Part two reviews ways of characterising and testing for hydrogen-assisted fatigue and fracture. A final group of chapters analyse the ways gaseous hydrogen embrittlement affects high-performance steels, superalloys, titanium and aluminium alloys.
