Abstract

In order to elucidate the temperature dependence of hydrogen-enhanced fatigue crack growth (FCG), the FCG test was performed on low-alloy Cr-Mo steel JIS-SCM435 according to ASTM E647 using compact tension (CT) specimen under 0.1 - 95 MPa hydrogen-gas at temperature ranging from room temperature (298 K) to 423 K. The obtained results were interpreted according to trap site occupancy under thermal equilibrium state. The FCG was significantly accelerated at RT under hydrogen-gas, that its maximum acceleration rate of the FCG was 15 at the pressure of 95 MPa at the temperature of 298 K. The hydrogen-enhanced FCG was mitigated due to temperature elevation for all pressure conditions. The trap site with binding energy of 44 kJ/mol dominated the temperature dependence of hydrogen-enhanced FCG, corresponding approximately to binding energy of dislocation core. The trap site (dislocation) occupancy is decreased with the temperature elevation, resulting in the mitigation of the FCG acceleration. On the basis of the obtained results, when the occupancy becomes higher at lower temperature, e.g. 298 K, hydrogen-enhanced FCG becomes more pronounced. The lower occupancy at higher temperature does the opposite.
