Hydrogen - Diffusion, Permeability, Hydride Formation and Metallic Embrittlement

A Metallurgical Perspective on Hydrogen Issues
Part 2 - Hydride Formation & Embrittlement

Webinar host: Julius Bonini, P.E.

Tuesday 4 October 2022 at 10:00 EDT, 15:00 UK time.

The growing use of hydrogen in the energy industry sets in motion a myriad of metallurgical issues and problems. The metallurgical community has long been dealing with problems associated with hydrogen interaction with metals; from containment in its liquid state at cryogenic temperatures to its burning as a fuel at high temperatures and everything in between.
This two-part webinar series tries to deal with some of the more complex metallurgical issues related to hydrogen.

Part 2 of this webinar series will deal with hydride formation and embrittlement. The dynamics of how hydrogen diffuses and infiltrates into a metal structure will be shown. How the reactivity of hydrogen causes hydrides to form and coalesce in critical areas leading to embrittlement will be discussed. How embrittlement is evaluated for particular metal systems will also be shown. And finally, the preventative measures which can be implemented to prevent hydrogen embrittlement will be presented.
