Abstract

The hydrogen embrittlement of a Fe-18Mn-0.6C austenitic steel (wt.%) was examined using tensile tests under hydrogen charging at various current densities. The tensile properties deteriorated due to the occurrence of intergranular fracture above a specific current density. The work hardening behavior was not affected by the hydrogen charging, indicating that the embrittlement was independent of the change in behavior of slip deformation, martensitic transformation, and twinning deformation. The relationship between the fracture stresses for the intergranular fracture and the diffusible hydrogen content of the austenitic steel was approximated to the power law similarly to ferritic high strength steels.
