Abstract

The mechanisms of hydrogen related fracture are briefly reviewed and a few evaluative statements are made about the stress induced hydride formation, decohesion, and a hydrogen enhanced localized plasticity mechanisms. A more complete discussion of the failure mechanism based on hydrogen enhanced dislocation mobility is presented and these observations are related to measurements of the macroscopic flow stress. The effects of hydrogen induced slip localization on the measured flow stress is discussed.
